CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE

The Import Price Index and the Export Price Index have been reweighted for the September quarter 2016. These indexes are reweighted annually for the September quarter using import and export values. A detailed explanation of the reweighting methodology and data sources is available in paragraphs 8-10 of the Explanatory Notes. The new weighting patterns are provided in the Appendix of this issue. As a consequence of the annual reweighting, the points contribution data for the June quarter 2016 shown in Tables 2, 8 and 17 have been updated from that published in the previous issue of this publication.
