CHANGES IN FORTHCOMING ISSUES
ANNUAL SEASONAL RE-ANALYSIS
The seasonally adjusted and trend estimates of goods, services, primary income and secondary income will be revised in the September quarter 2015 issue as a result of the annual seasonal re-analysis. This re-analysis reviews the seasonal and trading day factors in more detail than is possible in the quarterly processing cycle and assesses the appropriateness of any prior corrections.
NEW BASE YEAR AND RE-REFERENCING OF CHAIN VOLUME ESTIMATES
A new base year 2013-14 will be introduced into chain volume estimates and implicit price deflators in the September quarter 2015 issue. As a result, the chain volume estimate series and implicit price deflators series will be re-referenced to 2013-14.
1 Reference year for chain volume measures and price index is 2012–13. See paragraphs 16 to 18 of the Explanatory Notes.
2 In this commentary movements in indexes are based on data to four decimal places.
