SEPTEMBER KEY POINTS
CHANGES TO THIS ISSUE
There are a number of significant changes in this issue. This is the first release to move to the new international standards System of National Accounts 2008 (SNA08), Balance of Payments and International Investment Position Manual, sixth edition (BPM6) and Standard Economic Sector Classification of Australia, 2008 (SESCA08).
To inform users of these changes, a number of information papers have been released:
This publication records loans on a fair value basis where possible. Loans at nominal values are included as supplementary tables. Household loans from National general government are presented on a fair value basis up to June 2007. Further analysis will be undertaken on this series and the December quarter issue will present the complete time series on a fair value basis.
The net international position presented in this issue is different for the period June 1988 to June 2005 to that published in the Balance of Payments and International Investment Position, Australia, Sep 2009 (cat no 5302.0). The differences are due to the new treatment of Special Drawing Rights revised back to September 1988 in cat no. 5302.0 and back to June 2005 in this publication. The December quarter issue of this publication will align with the international investment series.
The Central bank, banks, securitiers, loans and bond market tables include estimates for internally securitised paper. Please refer to page 6 of the December quarter 2008 release for the ABS treatment of these securities.
There were no significant privatisations impacting the aggregates this quarter.
