MARCH KEY POINTS


SUMMARY
  • Total credit market outstanding of the domestic non-financial sectors at 31 March 2014 was $4,931.3b, an increase of $41.6b from the previous quarter. Demand for credit during the quarter was $46.2b and valuation decreases were $4.6b.
  • Demand for credit decreased by $40.3b from the previous quarters level, driven by other private non-financial corporations (down $25.8b), households (down $4.5b), and national general government (down $3.2b).


NON-FINANCIAL CORPORATIONS
  • Other private non-financial corporations raised a net $5.9b; through loan borrowings of $8.9b and equity issuance of $5.4b. This was partially offset by maturities of bonds of $4.6b and bills of exchange of $3.2b.


GENERAL GOVERNMENT
  • National general government raised a net $15.9b during the quarter driven by issuances of bonds of $25.1b. This was partially offset by maturities of one name paper of $9.2b. State and local general government raised $1.9b during the quarter through loan borrowings of $1.9b.


HOUSEHOLDS
  • Households raised a net $21.1b down $4.5b from the previous quarter estimate of $25.6b, primarily through loans of $21.9b during the March quarter 2014.

CHANGES TO THIS ISSUE
  • There are no significant changes to this issue.


SIGNIFICANT EVENTS
  • In September quarter 2013 issue of this publication the ABS announced that there would be revisions to previously published aggregates back to June quarter 1988 as part of the quality assurance work undertaken through reviews of compilation methods and through data provided to the ABS. These changes will be published in the June quarter 2014 issue of this publication.
  • During the March quarter 2014, the deposit activity of a unit has been confidentialised to maintain the anonymity of the unit. As a consequence of suppressing estimates directly impacted, other series have been consequentially suppressed in affected tables to preserve confidentiality.


REVISIONS IN THIS ISSUE

There have been revisions to previously published aggregates:
  • from September quarter 2012 onwards, revisions are due to quality assurance reviews of the compilation of published estimates and through data providers to the ABS Survey of Financial Information, ABS Survey of International Investment and APRA administrative data sets.
  • from June 1988 onwards, there are small revisions to the sectorial capital accounts due to updated sources and methodology.


CHANGES IN FUTURE ISSUES
  • The September quarter issue of this publication will introduce an expanded set of sector accounts. An information paper will be released with the June quarter describing the upcoming changes.
