The estimates in this issue incorporate estimates from the 2006-07, 2007-08 and 2008-09 annual supply and use tables. For information on the role of supply and use tables in the national accounts and the impact on 2008-09 estimates please see the 'Analysis of Results' section within this publication. There are also revisions to 2009-10 estimates arising from the 2008-09 benchmarks, new data and data confrontation to balance the accounts. These revisions are to component series and have left GDP growth for 2009-10 unchanged from that published in the June quarter 2010 edition of Australian National Accounts: National Income and Expenditure (cat. no. 5206.0).

Additionally there are a limited number of revisions prior to 2006-07:

  • Ownership of Dwellings has been revised back to 2001-02 due to the introduction of census benchmarks
  • Exports of Goods has been revised back to 1994-95 due to updating of prices in the weighting structure
  • Property Income series have been revised for the entire time series
  • Changes in Inventories has been revised between 1984-85 and 1993-1994
