(a) The estimates for goods and services are not necessarily consistent with the corresponding monthly estimates, shown in tables 2.4 to 2.7 obtained from International Trade in Good and Services, Australia, (cat. no. 5368.0) issued monthly, due to data revisions to the original monthly data not feeding into the quarterly original series until the next quarterly release of Balance of Payments and International Investment Position, Australia, (cat. no. 5302.0).
(b) In addition to the differences outlined in footnote (a), the quarterly seasonally adjusted estimates for goods and services are not necessarily consistent with corresponding monthly seasonally adjusted estimates, shown in table 2.4 due to the independent seasonal adjustment of the Quarterly and Monthly data.
