CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
Each September quarter, the reference and base year for chain volume estimates for the Survey of Private New Capital Expenditure are updated. A new base year, 2016-17, has been introduced into the chain volume estimates which has resulted in minor revisions to growth rates in subsequent periods. In addition, the chain volume estimates have been re-referenced to 2016-17. Additivity is preserved in the quarters of the reference year and subsequent quarters. Re-referencing affects the level of, but not the movements in, chain volume estimates.
