WHAT IF...??? REVISIONS TO TREND ESTIMATES


EFFECT OF NEW SEASONALLY ADJUSTED ESTIMATES ON TREND ESTIMATES

SHORT-TERM VISITOR ARRIVALS TREND REVISIONS

The most recent trend estimates for short-term visitor arrivals are likely to be revised when the next month's seasonally adjusted estimates become available. To assist in analysing these movement trends, the approximate effects of two possible scenarios on the previous trend estimate of short-term visitor arrivals are presented:

      1 The August 2019 seasonally adjusted estimate of visitor arrivals is 2.0% higher than July 2019.
      2 The August 2019 seasonally adjusted estimate of visitor arrivals is 2.0% lower than July 2019.
