REVISIONS

Revisions in original terms were made to Commercial finance in June 2009, and to Commercial finance, Housing finance and Personal finance in August 2009. Seasonally adjusted and trend series have been revised as a result of revisions to the original series and the incorporation of estimates for the latest month.


TREND ESTIMATES

As advised in the previous issue reporting was improved for Personal and Commercial finance from November 2008. In order to facilitate analysis of the time series a trend break has been incorporated between November and December 2008. Further investigation is being conducted and this may result in revisions to the time series.
