SEPTEMBER QUARTER

Summary Comments

New South Wales
  • New South Wales State final demand fell 0.2% in the September quarter on the back of 1.1% growth in the June quarter (revised up from a published 0.8%). Private gross fixed capital formation fell 4.5%, driven by a strong fall in Non-dwelling construction with a large drop in work done over the quarter. Public gross fixed capital formation fell 1.4% with growth in General government not enough to offset the fall in Public corporations. Household final consumption expenditure continued to grow with a 0.9% increase while Government final consumption expenditure increased 0.6%.

Victoria
  • Victoria State final demand was flat for the September quarter following the 1.3% increase in the June quarter (revised up from a published 0.9%). Private gross fixed capital formation increased 0.8% due to strength in Dwelling construction, with Dwellings increasing 2.2% due to a rise in commencements. Household final consumption expenditure was up 0.9% due to growth in most products, with only Cigarettes and tobacco detracting from growth. The public sector offset the growth in the private components, with Public gross fixed capital formation the greatest detractor, falling 13.2%, driven by falls in General government. State and local Government final consumption expenditure further detracted from growth in State final demand.

Queensland
  • Queensland State final demand fell 0.2% in the September quarter following a decrease of 1.3% in the June quarter (revised down from a published -0.8%) and is the fifth consecutive fall. There was continued weakness in Private gross fixed capital formation driven by Non-dwelling construction falling 2.7% in line with the declining activity on large scale projects as they near completion. Public gross fixed capital formation also fell, driven by a fall in General government of 19.5%. This weakness was offset this quarter by a rise in Household final consumption expenditure from increases in Other goods and services and Health. Both National and State and local Government final consumption expenditure rose.

South Australia
  • South Australia State final demand for the September quarter increased 0.1% following the 0.1% rise in the June quarter (revised up from a published -0.2%). Non-dwelling construction was the strongest contributor to growth, increasing 7.1% due to a rise in large engineering projects. Growth in both Household final consumption expenditure and Government final consumption expenditure led Total final consumption expenditure to increase 0.5%. A strong fall in Public gross fixed capital formation offset the majority of the strength elsewhere, due to General government investment falling 17.5%.

Western Australia
  • Western Australia State final demand for the September quarter fell 1.3% following a 0.4% rise for the June quarter (revised down from a published 1.5%). Non-dwelling construction was the greatest detractor from growth, falling 3.1% as falling activity in large projects continues. A fall in Machinery and equipment further detracted from growth. Public gross fixed capital formation decreased 12.8% due to falls in National general government and State and local public corporations. Household final consumption expenditure rose 0.5% as rises in Health and Furnishing and household equipment offset a fall in Purchase of vehicles.

Tasmania
  • Tasmania State final demand rose 0.1% for the September quarter following a 1.1% increase in the June quarter (revised up from a published 0.5%). Strong Final consumption expenditure offset falls in Gross fixed capital formation. Household final consumption expenditure was the strongest contributor to growth, rising 0.8% due to Health and Purchase of vehicles. State and local government final consumption expenditure contributed growth in State final demand. Private gross fixed capital formation fell 2.8% after two consecutive rises. Public gross fixed capital formation decreased 8.1% due to falls in National general government and State and local public corporations.

Northern Territory
  • Northern Territory State final demand fell 7.1% in the September quarter following a 3.4% fall in the June quarter. A strong fall in Private gross fixed capital formation (-21.1%) was the primary detractor from State final demand. This decrease was driven by a large fall in Non-dwelling construction. Machinery and equipment fell for the fourth consecutive quarter. Government final consumption expenditure partially offset the falls in Private gross fixed capital formation with a 6.2% increase.

Australian Capital Territory
  • Australian Capital Territory State final demand for the September quarter fell 1.5% following a 1.8% rise in the June quarter (revised down from 3.1%). Public gross fixed capital formation was the largest detractor from growth, falling 16.2% due to a decrease in National general government. Dwellings fell 12.4%, driving the fall in Private gross fixed capital formation and was due to a fall in commencements and work done. Household final consumption expenditure rose 0.6% due to Purchase of vehicles and Electricity, gas and other fuels.
