CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
On 1 October 2014, DIBP transitioned to a new provider of passenger card processing. A number of releases of Overseas Arrivals and Departures, Australia (cat. no. 3401.0) have been delayed due to passenger card processing issues as announced by DIBP. Contingency processing plans are now delivering data from DIBP. The ABS has increased quality assurance processes for May 2015. To ensure quality and accuracy, both input and output data have been thoroughly tested for each of the variables that are collected from the Australian passenger card.
For May 2015, investigations by the ABS identified a higher number of passenger cards missing than expected. Using additional data provided by DIBP from its Travel and Immigration Processing System (TRIPS), the ABS estimated 49,964 (2.0%) passenger cards missing from Eagle Farm Airport (Brisbane), Gold Coast Airport (Coolangatta), and Kingsford Smith Airport (Sydney). These records were added to the overseas arrivals and departures data for May. Any variables in these records that remained missing were imputed. For further information, see the Data Quality Issues (Appendix 2) in the left hand side navigation bar under the Explanatory Notes tab.
