CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
There are no changes in this issue.
There are revisions to most series for October 2007 due to further refinement to the methodology used to calculate the estimation benchmarks and some reporting errors.
The refined benchmark methodology also impacts the estimation benchmarks used for July, August and September 2007, but the impact on estimates for these months was not significant. Therefore, no revisions have been applied for these months in this release. Further analysis, when sample rotation occurs in January, may result in further revisions to the historical series.
Standard errors for the Australian estimates (original data) for November 2007 contained in this publication are:
