CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
There are no changes in this issue.
The statistics for Western Australia in recent months may have been impacted by the WA Building Act 2011 which came into effect on 2 April 2012. The statistics for Northern Territory have been significantly revised due to the late provision of some approval records.
The large increase in Dwelling Unit approvals in May 2012 was driven by a number of large private sector projects in New South Wales, Victoria, and the Australian Capital Territory.
Since July 2011, Building Approval statistics have been produced using the Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS) , as well as the Australian Standard Geographical Classification (ASGC). From the July 2012 issue, Building Approvals data will no longer be available on an ASGC basis. This change will only affect statistics below the State/Territory level. Statistical Local Area data will be discontinued, however Local Government Area data will be available on the ABS Building Approvals web pages, under the Downloads tab. For further information, please refer to the Feature Article in the April 2011 issue.
