CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
The data series presented in Tables 5 and 6 of this publication are sourced from Producer Price Indexes, Australia (PPI) (cat. no. 6427.0). From the September quarter 2012, the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) re-referenced the PPIs to a new index reference period of 2011-12=100.0. However, in order to present all index series consistently in this publication, Tables 5 and 6 will continue to be published on an index reference period of 2003-04=100.0. This requires the PPIs presented in Tables 5 and 6 to be re-scaled and may cause index numbers and period-to-period percentage changes to differ slightly to those previously published in House Price Index: Eight Capital Cities (cat. no. 6416.0). These differences do not constitute a revision. For further details, please see paragraph 29 of the Explanatory Notes.
All index series in this publication will continue to be presented with an index reference period of 2003-04=100.0 until the December quarter 2013, when all series will be re-referenced to an index reference period of 2011-12=100.0.
Estimates for the two most recent quarters of the HPI series are preliminary and subject to revision (see paragraphs 15 to 19 of the Explanatory Notes).
