The ABS is currently undertaking a major review of the Producer and International Trade Price Indexes. An Information Paper: Review of the Producer and International Trade Price Indexes, 2011 (cat. no. 6427.0.55.003) was released on 2 September 2011.

CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
Both the Import Price Index and the Export Price Index data have been reweighted for the September quarter 2011. This is in line with the ABS policy of reweighting these indexes annually for the September quarter, as explained in paragraphs 8-10 of the Explanatory Notes. The new weighting patterns are provided as an Appendix to this issue. As a consequence of the annual reweighting, the points contribution data for the June quarter 2011 shown in Tables 2, 8 and 17 differ from that published in the previous issue of this publication.
Any discrepancies between totals and sums of components are due to rounding.
Data referenced in the Key Points and Commentary are available from the tables shown in this publication, or in the corresponding tables of this publication on the ABS website <https://www.abs.gov.au>.
