This is the final issue of this publication. The ABS has discontinued the collection of a number of the manufacturing commodities data series. A range of items will continue to be published from the September Quarter 2004 as an electronic publication, Manufacturing Production, Australia (Cat. no. 8301.0.55.001). For more information, please contact Graeme Thomas by telephone on (08) 8237 7536 or by email on firstname.lastname@example.org.
This publication presents estimates of selected major indicators of manufacturing production for Australia.
More detailed and other commodity items are collected by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) and are available to users on request and for a charge, as are monthly series for a limited number of data items. These data items are listed in paragraph 21 of the Explanatory Notes.
