CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
Quarterly chain volume data incorporate a new base year, 2001-02, which has resulted in revisions to growth rates, small in most cases, for subsequent periods. In addition, the reference year has been advanced to 2001-02, thereby preserving additivity in the quarters after the reference year. Re-referencing resulted in revisions to levels, but not growth rates, for all periods.
Seasonally adjusted and trend estimates have been revised as a result of the adoption of new seasonal adjustment methodology. Concurrent seasonal adjustment has replaced forward factor methodology for all seasonally adjusted series in this publication. See paragraphs 30 and 31 of the Explanatory Notes.
SIGNIFICANT REVISIONS THIS ISSUE
Some non-residential building work commenced in the September quarter 2002, previously classified as work commenced for the public sector ‘entertainment and recreational’ category, has now been reclassified as work commenced for the private sector. The revisions affect tables 1, 5 and 6. The corresponding work done from and including the September quarter 2002 has also been reclassified as work done for the private sector, affecting tables 2, 3, 11 and 12. Non-residential building work under construction is also affected (tables 7 and 8), as is work yet to be done (tables 13 and 14).
