NOTES IN THIS ISSUE
The Survey of New Capital Expenditure contains estimates of actual and expected new capital expenditure by private businesses. Users should be aware that there are occasions where projects may change ownership during the construction phase from public to private sector. On these occasions the new capital expenditure associated with such projects will be reflected in the appropriate sector effective from the time of the ownership change. The buildings and structures series is impacted by a sectoral change in the current quarter.
The ABS intends to cease publishing a PDF as part of the release of Private New Capital Expenditure and Expected Expenditure, Australia (ABS cat. no. 5625.0). All of the information that is contained in the PDF will continue to be available elsewhere in this release. The March quarter 2019 issue, released in May 2019, is expected to be the final release with a PDF. Should you have any concerns regarding this transition, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mining projects tend to be complex in structure and comprise a number of different investment activities including exploration, engineering construction, plant and equipment and buildings. A feature article released in the March 2012 issue of Private New Capital Expenditure and Expected Expenditure, Australia (cat. no. 5625.0) provides a summary of the conceptual basis of the relevant ABS publications that measure investment in Australia, using a hypothetical mining project to illustrate how this investment is reflected in ABS data.
These documents will be presented in a new window.
