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 19 January 2011 and in Building Activity, Australia (cat. no. 8752.0) on 20 January 2011.
CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
A new base year, 2008-09, has been introduced into the chain volume estimates which has resulted in revisions to growth rates in subsequent periods. In addition, the chain volume estimates have been re-referenced to 2008-09, thereby preserving additivity in the quarters after the reference year. Re-referencing affects the levels of, but not the movements in, chain volume estimates.
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. For more details on trend estimates, please see paragraphs 24 to 26 of the explanatory notes.
