DECEMBER KEY POINTS
CHANGES TO THIS ISSUE
Following ongoing quality assurance work a number of data quality issues have been identified with table 37 - National capital accounts by sector and subsector. This table will be unavailable until further notice. However, capital accounts by sector will continue to be published as part of table 22 - flow of funds matrix.
During the December quarter 2011, the investment activity of some units have been confidentialised to maintain the anonymity of those units that have not yet given approval to publish their investment activity and in the case where they may be identifiable. Included are state and local public non-financial corporations, life insurance institutions, money market investment funds and listed other financial institutions. As a consequence of suppressing estimates directly impacted, it has been necessary to consequentially suppress other series in the affected table to preserve confidentiality. Statistics published in this issue reflect these changes.
The Central bank, banks, securitisers and bond market tables include estimates for internally securitised paper. Please refer to December Quarter 2008 release for ABS treatment of internally securitised paper for the ABS treatment of these securities.
REVISIONS IN THIS ISSUE
There have been revisions back to March 2010 to previously published aggregates due to quality assurance work undertaken with data providers to the ABS Survey of Financial Information, ABS Survey of International Investment and APRA administrative data sets. Major revision work has been carried out to instrument and total assests in the pension funds sector for the purposes of better alignment between the ABS Managed Funds, Australia publication (cat no. 5655.0) and the quarterly APRA superannuation publications.
Significant revision work has been carried out in the banks sector to reflect amendments to source data. As a result, there are a number of series breaks between December 2009 and March 2010.
