There have been revisions in some series as a result of the receipt of revised administrative data and revised survey data. Superannuation and investment manager data have been revised back to June quarter 2006.


The format of, and data within, this publication will change with the September quarter 2010 issue. This will impact the time series. The changes result from the incorporation of revised international standards. Information on these changes, including a partial time series on the new basis, will be published in Information paper: Changes to Managed Funds, Australia to incorporate revised international standards (cat. no. 5655.0.55.002) in early October 2010. For further information on the specific issues involved please contact Judy Sykes on 02 6252 5222 or alternatively judy.sykes@abs.gov.au.
