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 85% 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 3 October 2012 and in Building Activity, Australia (cat. no. 8752.0) on 17 October 2012.
From the September 2012 release, the Value of building work in the pipeline and the Number of dwelling units approved not yet commenced series currently published in Table 15 and 16 of this publication and Time Series spreadsheets Table 11, 12 and 13 will no longer be included in Construction Work Done, Preliminary, Australia (cat. no. 8755.0). The data contained within these spreadsheets will be included in Building Activity, Australia (cat. no. 8752.0) from the September quarter 2012 issue onwards. Table 10 of the Time Series spreadsheets will also be removed from Construction Work Done, Preliminary, Australia (cat. no. 8755.0) from the September quarter 2012 issue as this data is available in Time Series spreadsheet Table 8 of this publication.

The trend estimates should be interpreted with caution as the underlying behaviour of building activity may be affected by Government stimulus packages as well as other developments associated with global economic conditions. Trend estimates should be used with caution due to the volatility caused by large engineering projects. For more details on trend estimates, please see paragraphs 24 to 26 of the explanatory notes.
