MAY KEY POINTS
CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
This issue includes updated online retail turnover estimates for the May 2014 reference month. These estimates are provided and explained within the appendix section of this publication.
An annual seasonal reanalysis based on estimates up to and including April 2014 identified a number of minor revisions, including a trend break in the supermarket series in December 2013. The trend break of $190m has been spread across supermarkets in NSW, Victoria and Queensland and increases the trend figure for that month for Australia from 0.7% to 1.2%. The trend break has little impact on recent months.
There are no revisions to the original estimates. Revisions to seasonally adjusted estimates are due to the concurrent methodology for deriving seasonal factors and changes arising from the annual seasonal reanalysis.
