CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
The Weighted median and Trimmed mean index numbers are now published to four decimal places, and are available in the time series spreadsheet "TABLE 8. CPI: Analytical Series, Weighted Average of Eight Capital Cities". The percentage changes for the Weighted median and Trimmed mean are calculated from these index numbers and continue to be published in "TABLE 8. Analytical Series, Weighted Average of Eight Capital Cities".
Seasonally adjusted indexes for the CPI groups and the trade exposure series, Tradables and Non-tradables, are now included in the time series spreadsheet "TABLE 15. CPI: Group, Expenditure Class and Selected Analytical Series Index Numbers, Seasonally adjusted, Weighted Average of Eight Capital Cities".
Samples of these changes were published on the ABS website on 31 March 2015 in Information Paper: Changes to Publication 6401.0 - Consumer Price Index, Australia (cat. no. 6401.0.55.005).
