NOTES

This information paper advises users of proposed changes to the Time Series Spreadsheets associated with the publication "Housing Finance, Australia" (cat. no. 5609.0).


A concordance between the current Time Series Spreadsheets (lotus 1-2-3 .wks format) and the proposed new tables (in Excel .xls format) is included below.


Links to the new tables providing a view of the proposed new format are available from the Details tab of this paper.


These changes are due to come into effect with the July 2006 issue of 5609.0 which will be released on 8 September 2006.


The new product provides a range of benefits for time series clients including:

    • longer time series (we can now provide more than 255 observations in a single series) are presented in columns in accordance with Time Series analysis conventions,
    • consistent and complete series metadata is provided for every series displayed,
    • a readily recognised file format (Excel) that will 'auto launch' in most business IT environments and
    • built in features on which clients can base reliable processing systems.

The new format files can be opened, read and manipulated using Excel 2003 (or equivalent).
