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 building 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 28 to 30 of the explanatory notes.
