ABOUT THIS ISSUE
This publication provides an early indication of trends in building and engineering construction activity. The data are estimates based on a response rate of approximately 80% of the value of both building and engineering work done during the quarter. More comprehensive and updated results will be released in Engineering Construction Activity, Australia (cat.no.8762.0) on 6 July 2011 and in Building Activity, Australia (cat. no. 8752.0) on 20 July 2011.
CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
There are no changes in this issue.
Widespread flooding in the eastern states, particularly Queensland, and other natural disasters have not adversely affected the quality of estimates in this release. However, these events may have had an impact on the level of construction activity in the March quarter of 2011.
The trend estimates should be interpreted with caution as the underlying behaviour of building activity may be affected by Government stimulus packages, including the "Building the Education Revolution" (BER) program and Social Housing Initiatives as well as other developments associated with global economic conditions. For more details on trend estimates, please see paragraphs 24 to 26 of the explanatory notes.
