ABOUT THIS ISSUE
This publication provides an early indication of trends in building and engineering construction activity. The data are estimates based on a response rate of approximately 80% of the value of both building and engineering work done during the quarter. More comprehensive and updated results will be released in Engineering Construction Activity, Australia (cat.no.8762.0) on 6 October 2010 and in Building Activity, Australia (cat. no. 8752.0) on 13 October 2010.
CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
There are no changes in this issue.
The trend estimates should be interpreted with caution as the underlying behaviour of building activity may be affected by Government stimulus packages, including the "Building the Education Revolution" (BER) program and Social Housing Initiatives as well as other developments associated with global economic conditions. Though the impact of the BER program was excluded from the trend estimates in the June 2009 through to the March 2010 releases of this data, this will no longer be the case from the June quarter 2010. Affected trend estimates have been revised to include building activity resulting from the BER program. For more details on trend estimates, please see paragraphs 24 to 26 of the explanatory notes.
