CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
DIBP have recently commenced a transition to the Departures Smartgate system for processing passengers leaving Australia. Smartgates were progressively rolled out at Kingsford Smith (Sydney) airport from June 2015. Using additional data provided by DIBP from its Travel and Immigration Processing System (TRIPS), the ABS estimated that October had 44,213 outgoing passenger cards missing from Kingsford Smith airport. These records were added to the overseas arrivals and departures data for October. Any variables in these records that remained missing, due to the passenger card information not being available, were imputed. For further information, see the Data Quality Issues (Appendix 2) in the left hand side navigation bar under the Explanatory Notes tab.
