SEPTEMBER KEY POINTS
REVISIONS IN THIS ISSUE
The estimates in this issue incorporate the 2015-16 annual supply and use tables. The 2015-16 supply and use tables incorporate historical revisions necessary to reflect changes in methods, concepts, classifications and data sources and to maintain consistent time series. These changes have resulted in revisions to the entire National Accounts time series. For information on the role of supply and use tables in the national accounts please see the Analysis of Results section in Australian System of National Accounts, 2016-17 (cat. no. 5204.0). For specific details on the revisions, including changes to estimates, and the range of improvements incorporated in the historical revisions please see the Feature Article included in that publication.
This publication also includes the impact of re-referencing chain volume (CVM) estimates to the 2015-16 financial year. This in isolation will only affect levels of CVM estimates, generally leaving growth rates unchanged. Re-referencing can have an impact on CVM GDP growth (and other estimates) for the latest financial year (2016-17) if there are significant relative price changes between 2014-15 and 2015-16.
The methods for estimating government final consumption expenditure and household final consumption expenditure of cigarettes and tobacco on a quarterly basis have been improved. Implementation of the new methods have resulted in revisions dating back to September quarter 2002 and September quarter 2012 respectively.
There are also revisions in this issue due to the incorporation of more up-to-date data and concurrent seasonal adjustment.
