  • In the September quarter 2010, state final demand in WA (chain volume measures) increased by 1.2% in trend and 0.4% in seasonally adjusted terms. This growth was slower than in the previous three quarters, but equates to an increase of around 6% in both series since the September quarter 2009, the strongest annual growth of all states and territories.
  • Final consumption expenditure by households, which makes up about 44% of total state final demand, recorded an annual increase of around 5% in both trend and seasonally adjusted terms. Private gross fixed capital formation, contributing over a third (37%) to state final demand, also recorded steady annual growth (about 6% in trend and 7% in seasonally adjusted terms).

  • The quarterly State Final Demand value has not decreased in trend terms in almost 10 years, a record unmatched by any other state or territory. After flattening in late 2008 and early 2009, growth in state final demand began to strengthen again, although a smaller increase (1.2%) in the September quarter 2010 suggests a slowing of this trend.
