In seasonally adjusted chain volume terms, Western Australia's state final demand grew 3.2% ($925 million) to $29,503 million in the June quarter 2007. The rise was mainly driven by private investment on machinery and equipment (up 11.2% or $345 million) and intangible fixed assets (up 33.9% or $217 million). The large percentage rise in intangible fixed assets was mainly due to investment in mineral and petroleum exploration. Household final consumption expenditure rose 0.8% ($105 million) during the quarter, mainly on rent and other dwelling services (up 1.0% or $22 million), purchase of vehicles (up 3.1% or $20 million) and clothing and footwear (up 2.1% or $12 million). General government final consumption expenditure recorded a fall of 5.0% ($20 million).
