NOTE FOR SUBSCRIBERS
The following document details the cessation of the quarterly state and territory building approvals publications, and offers alternative sources for future data.
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 (see paragraphs 25-26 of the Explanatory Notes).
Area statistics are now classified to the Australian Standard Geographical Classification, 2003 Edition (see paragraph 27 of the Explanatory Notes).
A special article 'Functional Classification of Buildings', containing data for 2001-02 and 2002-03 was included in the September 2003 issue of Building Approvals Australia (cat. no. 8731.0). This and other articles are available from the ABS web site at <www.abs.gov.au> Go to the 'Feature Articles' link on the home page, then select 'Industry/Construction'.
