CHAPTER 6 FUTURE DIRECTIONS
6.1 The changes outlined in this information paper will be published in Residential Property Price Indexes: Eight Capital Cities (cat. no. 6416.0), from the December quarter 2013.
6.2 The geographic scope of the HPI and the ADPI is currently restricted to the eight Greater Capital City Statistical Areas (GCCSA). According to 2011 Census data, 37.7% of all occupied private dwellings in Australia are located in the balance of state. Development of indexes covering areas outside the GCCSAs is continuing. The provision of balance of state indexes remains a longer term objective of the ABS and is subject to available funding.
6.3 An updated edition of House Price Indexes: Concepts, Sources and Methods, Australia, 2009 (cat. no. 6464.0) covering changes outlined in this information paper is planned for release in the second half of 2014.
