Statistics on housing finance provided by savings and trading banks are now shown in two other ABS publications as follows:
(i) Statistics on lending commitments (conceptually the same as loan approvals) for housing purposes will continue to be published, but on a revised basis as from July 1984, in the existing publication Housing Finance for Owner Occupation, Australia (Cat. No. 5609.0)
(ii) Statistics on the total balances outstanding at end of period on housing loans will continue to be available in the publication Savings Banks, Australia (Cat. No. 5602.0)
Statistics on interest debited during period to savings bank housing loan accounts of individuals will no longer be available.
This publication has been converted from older electronic formats and does not necessarily have the same appearance and functionality as later releases.
