In this release, revisions are provided for the time period from July 2018 to January 2020. Further information about potential sources of revisions can be found in the feature article released with the January 2016 8731.0 publication - "Revisions to Building Approval Statistics".
Small area data cubes and CSV files will be made available in an “Additional Information” release five business days after the main publication. These will be for Statistical Area Level 2 and Local Government Areas. Release dates are published under the “Forthcoming Issues” section of the publication and in ABS Release Advice.
A number of time series spreadsheets contain ‘np’ (not available for publication) annotations. This is due to confidential data being contained in these series.

Whilst it is expected that bushfire rebuilding and recovery activity will have some impact on future Building Approvals estimates, this activity is not yet present in the February estimates. The ABS is monitoring for potential impacts from COVID-19 on Building Approvals statistics.
