REVISIONS IN THIS ISSUE

There are revisions in this issue to incorporate new data, the largest changes being to estimates of Agricultural gross value added and Agricultural income.


FLOODS

Flooding in Queensland began in late December 2010. While the floods have had some effect on the December quarter estimates, it is expected that the more significant economic impact of this and floods in other states will be reflected in the estimates for the March quarter 2011 release of this publication. A description of where the floods and the associated recovery efforts will affect the national accounts is included in the analysis and comments section of this release.
