OUTCOMES OF THE REVIEW OF INTERNATIONAL ACCOUNTS STATISTICAL OUTPUTS

As Australia's national statistical agency, the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) provides a statistical service that informs discussion and decision making. It is important we ensure we are producing data that are required and in demand. In the area of Balance of Payments and International Investment Statistics, the ABS has moved over the years to increase the range and extent of detail provided in the statistics.

The 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). The ABS received a number of submissions from stakeholders which influenced the proposals considered and resulting outcomes.

Based on our analysis of the range of statistics and reflecting on user comments, the ABS is making changes to the International Accounts outputs to ensure we are producing the most relevant and useful data to inform users of Australia’s interactions with the rest of the world. These changes are outlined in the Feature Article: Outcomes of the Review of International Statistical Outputs published in this issue of Balance of Payments and International Investment Position, Australia (cat. no. 5302.0).
