This publication contains overseas movement data which should not be interpreted as 'persons'. See paragraph 5 of the Explanatory Notes for more detail.
The statistics in this publication have been rounded to the nearest 100 for short-term movements and to the nearest 10 for permanent and long-term movements. As a result, sums of the components may not add exactly to totals. Analysis featured in this publication is based on unrounded data. Calculations made on rounded data may differ to those published.
CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
The large increase in the original estimates for short-term visitor arrivals from India has caused some uncertainty in the trend estimates from December 2012. A longer time series of data is required before the effects of changes in travel behaviour to Australia from India, and hence the final trend for this series, can be determined. This uncertainty is therefore also present in the regional total series (e.g. Total Southern and Central Asia) and the total series.
