CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
From the September quarter 2012, all index numbers will be calculated on a new index reference period of 2011-12. This will result in the index numbers for each index series being reset to 100.0 for the financial year 2011-12. Period-to-period percentage changes may differ slightly to those previously published due to rounding and the re-referencing. These differences do not constitute a revision. Re-referencing conversion factors are available from the ABS website in the 'Downloads' tab of this issue as 'Table 17 - CPI conversion factors, from index reference period 1989-90 to 2011-12'. Further information on re-referencing can be found in Appendix 1 of this issue, and in Chapter 12 of Consumer Price Index: Concepts, Sources and Methods, 2011 (cat. no. 6461.0).
Appendix 2 of this issue contains an article describing the treatment of child care services in the Australian Consumer Price Index.
Any discrepancies between totals and sums of components in this publication are due to rounding.
