REVISIONS IN THIS ISSUE
The ABS identified a data quality issue with estimates for state or territory of stay/residence since July 2017, in particular with estimates for the Northern Territory being understated and a corresponding overstatement for New South Wales. Revised OAD statistics for July to November 2017 are included in this issue.
Further investigations by the ABS and the Department of Home Affairs have identified additional quality issues with the capture and coding of state or territory of stay/residence from incoming passenger cards from July 2017 onwards. Data from the cards is currently being re-processed to correct these issues and will be re-supplied to the ABS. Once this is complete, ABS will revise OAD statistics from July 2017 onwards.
For further information, see the Data Quality Issues (Appendix) on the left hand side under the Explanatory Notes tab.
