FEATURE ARTICLE: OUTCOMES OF THE REVIEW OF INTERNATIONAL ACCOUNTS STATISTICAL OUTPUTS

INTRODUCTION

The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) announced it was undertaking a review of International Accounts statistical outputs in the March quarter 2015 issue of Balance of Payments and International Investment Position, Australia (cat. no. 5302.0) and monthly releases of International Trade in Goods and Services, Australia (cat. no. 5368.0) between April and June 2015. The ABS has moved over the years to increase the range and extent of detail provided and the review focused on strategies to reshape Australia’s International Accounts statistics to ensure they remain relevant for users now and into the future. The ABS received a number of submissions from stakeholders which have assisted us to update the international accounts statistics.


CURRENT STATISTICAL OUTPUT

The ABS currently produces the following publications:



OUTPUT REVIEW OUTCOMES

Based on our analysis of the range of statistics and reflecting on stakeholder submissions, the ABS is making changes to the International Accounts outputs to ensure we are producing the most relevant and useful data to inform users about Australia’s interactions with the rest of the world.
A high priority expressed throughout the stakeholder submissions was the need to improve the timeliness of the International Trade in Services survey. Currently this survey is not available until after the quarterly balance of payments statistics has been published. ABS models these data using indicators for the current quarter and replaces the modelled data when actual survey data become available. The ABS will continue to explore options to improve the timeliness of collection for these data.


FURTHER INFORMATION

The ABS would like to thank all those who contributed to the review. For further information regarding the changes presented please contact the International Accounts Director on Canberra (02) 6252 7988 or email balance.of.payments@abs.gov.au.
