ABOUT THIS ISSUE
This publication updates the preliminary estimates released in Construction Work Done, Australia (cat. no. 8755.0) on 23 November 2011.
CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
A new base year, 2009-10, has been introduced into the chain volume estimates which has resulted in revisions to growth rates in subsequent periods. In addition, the chain volume estimates have been re-referenced to 2009-10, thereby preserving additivity in the quarters after the reference year. Re-referencing affects the levels of, but not the movements in, chain volume estimates.
SIGNIFICANT REVISIONS THIS QUARTER
Compared with the current price estimates in original terms published in the previous issue of this publication:
Trend estimates should be used with caution due to the volatility caused by large engineering projects. For more details on trend estimates, please see paragraphs 22 to 24 of the explanatory notes.
