WAGE PRICE INDEX TABLES
The wage price indexes in Tables 1, 2b, 3, 4b, 5b, 7b, 9b, 10b and 11b are updated and released every quarter. The corresponding financial year wage price indexes in Tables 2a, 3a, 4a, 5a, 7a, 9a, 10a and 11a are updated and released each June quarter for the preceding financial year. There are no financial year indexes created for Table 1.
The title and item description of Wage Price Index tables 2a, 3a, 4a, 5a, 7a, 9a, 10a, and 11a have been changed from "Average Annual Index" to "Financial Year Index" from the December quarter 2005 issue of the Labour Price Index, Australia (cat. no. 6345.0).
The financial year labour price indexes in Tables 13 to 23 are compiled and released each September quarter and refer to the preceding financial year (ending June).
An extra description has been added to the following time series table headings. Table 1 has "Sector" included in the file description and Tables 2a to 4b and 10a and 10b has "by State" inserted into the description. In addition, there are two extra spreadsheets, one for quarterly index numbers and the other for financial year index numbers that contain all the series from Tables 2a to 11b.
