MARCH KEY POINTS


SUMMARY
  • Total credit market outstandings of the domestic non-financial sectors at 31 March 2009 was $3,267.8b, an increase of $13.5b from the previous quarter. Demand for credit during the quarter was $34.2b and valuation decreases were $20.7b.
  • Demand for credit was down $32.0b from the previous quarter, driven by decreased demand by private non-financial corporations (down $33.0b), state and local public non-financial corporations (down $3.5b) and state and local general government (down $2.3b). This was offset by an increase in demand by households and national general government, $3.5b and $3.2b respectively.


NON-FINANCIAL CORPORATIONS
  • Non-financial corporations raised a net $10.3b, mostly through share issuance of $18.1b. This was offset by repayments of loans of $10.5b.


GENERAL GOVERNMENT
  • National general government issued one name paper of $3.4b.


HOUSEHOLDS
  • Households raised a net $15.0b during the March quarter 2009, up $3.5b from the December quarter 2008 estimate of $11.5b.

CHANGES TO THIS ISSUE

There are no significant changes to this issue.


SIGNIFICANT EVENTS

The global financial crisis has caused changes in the structure and behaviour of financial markets. Sudden shifts in structural relationships which have existed for some time mean that data supplied by businesses to the ABS and ABS editing and compilation practices may not reflect the impact of these changes fully and in a timely manner. The ABS is working with providers and reviewing and updating, where needed, a range of methods relating to the collection and compilation of financial sector output, income, transactions, positions and prices. This process is likely to lead to revisions in future releases.

The Central bank, banks, financial intermediaries n.e.c. and bond market tables include estimates for internally securitised paper. Please refer to page 6 of the December quarter 2008 release for the ABS treatment of these securities.

There were no significant privatisations impacting the aggregates this quarter.


REVISIONS IN THIS ISSUE

There have been revisions back to June 2005 to previously published aggregates due to quality assurance work undertaken with data providers to the ABS Survey of Financial Information, ABS Survey of International Investment and APRA administrative data sets.
