CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
In the June quarter 2009 the ABS introduced updated forms for the Survey of Financial Information which is the primary source of data for this publication. The updates resulted from a revision to international standards to reflect the changes that have occurred in the financial system during the past 10 years. As a result of these changes several series in Tables 9 through 19 are no longer available from the June quarter 2009. For further information on the specific series involved please contact Judy Sykes on 02 6252 5222 or alternatively firstname.lastname@example.org.
For further information about these and related statistics, contact the National Information and Referral Service on 1300 135 070 or Judy Sykes on Canberra (02) 6252 5222.
