REVISIONS

In this issue revisions have been made to the original series as a result of improved reporting of survey and administrative data. These revisions have an impact on:
  • Owner occupied housing values for periods September 2012 to May 2015.
  • Commercial Finance values for periods August 2013 to May 2015.
  • Personal Finance values for the periods August 2013 to May 2015.
  • Lease Finance values for April 2015.
  • Investment housing for the periods August 2013 to May 2015.

These revisions include improved reporting by a significant lender from December 2014. The impact of this improved reporting has resulted in trend breaks being applied to the following series in December 2014:
  • Secured Housing Finance - Alterations and additions series published in Tables 1 and 8.
  • Personal Finance - Fixed loans series published in Tables 1 and 50.
  • Personal Finance - Revolving credit series published in Tables 1 and 50.
  • Personal Finance - Total series published in Tables 1 and 50.

The ABS is currently investigating the impact on the series estimates for the periods prior to December 2014 and will determine if adjustments are necessary to the historical series. Any resulting revisions will be published in future issues of this publication.


OWNER OCCUPATION AND INVESTMENT HOUSING

Statistics in this publication are currently derived from returns submitted to the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) under the Financial Sector (Collection of Data) Act 2001, primarily for use by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS). The ABS anticipates that in the coming months some lenders will revise residential mortgage data reported to APRA. These revisions are expected to result in changes in the proportion of the investment housing statistics relative to owner occupation statistics. It is not expected that aggregate data on lending statistics for housing will change significantly. The ABS is working closely with APRA and affected lenders as they remediate their data and processes.


PRIVACY

The ABS Privacy Policy outlines how the ABS will handle any personal information that you provide to the ABS.
