Other yearly periods are specifically indicated. The range of years shown in the table headings, for example, 1901 to 1999-2000, indicates the period covered, but does not necessarily imply that each intervening year is included or that the yearly period has remained the same throughout the series.

Values are shown in Australian dollars ($) or cents (c) unless another currency is specified.
