A different method of seasonal adjustment will be used in Housing Finance for Owner Occupation, Australia (cat. no. 5609.0) and Lending Finance, Australia (cat. no. 5671.0) from their October 2003 issues. The forward factor approach used up until now will be replaced by the concurrent adjustment method. A note showing the impacts of the changed methodology on the series in these publications is now available on the ABS website (click on AusStats). Furthermore, table eight of 5671.0 includes seasonally adjusted and trend series data for all components of housing finance, for the first time, from August 2003.
