DATA NOTES

A number of time series spreadsheets contain 'np' (not available for publication) annotations. This is due to confidential data being contained in these series.

Small area data cubes will be released in an "Additional Information" release five business days after the main publication. The data cubes will be for Statistical Area Level 2 and Local Government Areas. Release dates are published under the "Forthcoming Issues" section of the publication and in ABS Release Advice.

A new base year, 2012-13, 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 2012-13, thereby preserving additivity in the quarters after the reference year. Re-referencing affects the levels of, but not the movements in, chain volume estimates. For further information, see the explanatory notes.
