The wage price indexes in Tables 1 to 10 are updated and released every quarter. The financial year wage price indexes that appear in Tables 2 to 10 are updated each June quarter for the preceding financial year.
The financial year non-wage and labour price indexes in Tables 11 to 21 are compiled and released each September quarter and refer to the preceding financial year (ending June). A summary of the latest financial year non-wage and labour price indexes is included as an appendix to the December, March, and June quarter releases.
From the September quarter 2009, all index numbers have been released on a new reference base of 2008–09, that is, the numbers in each index series have been reset to equal 100.0 for the financial year 2008–09. Period-to-period percentage changes may differ slightly to those previously published due to re-referencing and rounding. These differences do not constitute a revision. See Appendix 2 for more detail.
