Seasonally adjusted and trend estimates
The seasonally adjusted and trend estimates of goods and services have been revised as a result of the annual seasonal re-analysis. This re-analysis reviews the seasonal and trading day factors in more detail than is possible in the quarterly processing cycle and assesses the appropriateness of any prior corrections. The results of this review have introduced trend breaks to the 'capital goods n.e.s.' component for the March and September quarters 2011.
Chain volume estimates, implicit price deflators and term of trade indexes
A new reference year 2009-10, has been introduced into the chain volume estimates, implicit price deflators and terms of trade indexes. Additivity has been preserved in the quarters in and subsequent to the new reference year. Re-referencing affects the levels, but not the movements, of chain volume estimates, implicit price deflators and terms of trade indexes.
Quantity re-valuation is used for selected goods credits components. The relative values used by quantity revaluation for all quarters from September quarter 2009 have been updated to 2009-10 weights, replacing the relative values for 2008-09 used in the June quarter 2011 issue. This has resulted in revisions to the growth rates of chain volume estimates, implicit price deflators and terms of trade indexes for all periods from September quarter 2009.
Selected international accounts ratios - table 35
The updated annual GDP and GNI estimates released in the Australian System of National Accounts, 2010-11 (cat. no. 5204.0) released on 28 October 2011 will be revised and incorporated into the quarterly national accounts with the September quarter 2011 issue of Australian National Accounts: National Income and Expenditure (cat. no. 5206.0) to be released on 7 December 2011. The revised estimates will change the level of the quarterly and annual GDP and GNI used in the ratios for tables 35 and 85 of this publication. As the ratios using the currently available GDP and GNI would be inconsistent with the revised data, the ratios have been suppressed in this issue. Tables 35 and 85 in the Time Series data released in conjunction with this publication will be updated with the release of the quarterly national accounts on 7 December 2011.
