SEPTEMBER QUARTER

Summary Comments

Agriculture, forestry and fishing
  • The seasonally adjusted estimate fell 2.3% driven by a decrease in Agriculture (-3.3%). This was primarily due to a fall in livestock production, which was partially offset by an increase in grain production.

Mining
  • The seasonally adjusted estimate rose 5.2% following the weak June quarter result (-2.7%). The increase was driven by Oil and gas extraction (11.4%), Iron ore mining (5.0%) and Coal mining (4.6%).

Construction
  • The seasonally adjusted estimate rose 1.2% driven by increases in Construction services and Residential building activity.

Financial and insurance services
  • The seasonally adjusted estimate rose 1.3% driven by increases across all subdivisions.

Rental, hiring and real estate services
  • The seasonally adjusted estimate rose 2.8% driven by Property operators and real estate services recording strong activity for the September quarter.

Professional, scientific and technical services
  • The seasonally adjusted estimate fell 1.2% driven by Professional, scientific and technical services (excluding Computer system design and related services) following a fall in engineering consultancy activity.
