Revisions in this issue
The estimates in this issue incorporate the 2017-18 annual supply and use tables. The supply and use tables incorporate revisions reflecting changes in methods, concepts, classifications and data sources. For more information on the role of supply and use tables in the national accounts and the major revisions please see the Analysis of Results section in Australian System of National Accounts, 2018-19 (cat. no. 5204.0).
This publication also includes the impact of re-referencing chain volume (CVM) estimates to the 2017–18 financial year. This in isolation will only affect levels of CVM estimates, generally leaving growth rates unchanged. Re-referencing can have an impact on CVM GDP growth (and other estimates) for the latest financial year (2017–18) if there are significant relative price changes between 2016–17 and 2017–18.
There are also revisions in this issue due to the incorporation of more up-to-date data and concurrent seasonal adjustment.
