Modellers' Database, March 2006 (1364.0.15.003) is expected to be released on Wednesday 26 July 2006.
Table 28: The series NPOP (Population : Total ) was corrupted and has now been rectified, this change does not affect any other series
Table 36: The definition of XROCB (Non Unemployment Pensions Rate to PCON) has been changed slightly. In the past it was the ratio of government cash benefits other than unemployment benefits to the product of population (NPOP) and the consumption deflator (PCON). Now this ratio is adjusted for productivity growth. The strange behaviour in this series around 1971 is caused by the error in NPOP ( Population : Total ). This change does not affect any other series outside those described above.

The Modellers' Database consists of over 500 quarterly times series constructed from the NIF and TRYM econometric models. They are useful to economists, econometricians, financial analysts and students. The database covers national accounts, banking and investment, price indexes, interest rates, world data, population and labour statistics and wage and tax rates. Some of the time series are published elsewhere by ABS while others are specifically constructed for the TRYM and NIF models. For most series the data span is between 20 and 25 years.
