CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
  • This publication now includes detailed Mining Industry data. Table 2A of the time series spreadsheets has been extended to incorporate these statistics.
  • Each September quarter the reference and base year for chain volume estimates for the Survey of Private New Capital Expenditure are updated. A new base year, 2010-11, has been introduced into the chain volume estimates which has resulted in minor revisions to growth rates in subsequent periods. In addition, the chain volume estimates have been re-referenced to 2010-11. Additivity is preserved in the quarters of the reference year and subsequent quarters. Re-referencing affects the level of, but not the movements in, chain volume estimates.
  • As happens each year, a seasonal re-analysis has been undertaken based on estimates up to and including the June quarter 2012. No significant changes have occurred this re-analysis, resulting in only minor revisions to the seasonally adjusted estimates.
