In this release, revisions are provided for the time period from July 2015 to September 2016 and include revisions resulting from the Building Approvals Annual Review. The Annual Review has been operating since July 2015, requesting historical data back to the most recent large scale review (June 2012). Further information about the Annual Review and other potential sources of revisions can be found in the feature article released with the January 2016 8731.0 publication - "Revisions to Building Approval Statistics".
Small area data cubes will be released in an “Additional Information” release five business days after the main publication. Release dates are published under the “Forthcoming Issues” section of the publication and in ABS Release Advice.
A new base year, 2014-15, has been introduced into the chain volume estimates which has resulted in revisions to growth rates in subsequent periods. The chain volume estimates have been re-referenced to 2014-15, thereby preserving additivity in the quarters after the reference year. Re-referencing affects the levels of, but not the movements in, chain volume estimates.
A number of time series spreadsheets contain ‘np’ (not available for publication) annotations. This is due to confidential data being contained in these series.
