CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
An improvement to the seasonal adjustment methodology of the current price value of the 'coal, coke and briquettes' component has been introduced from July 2005 onwards. Previously the 'coal, coke and briquettes' component had only a length–of–month adjustment applied, which is maintained up to June 2005. This change in methodology will be closely monitored as part of our ongoing improvement program.
Adjustments have been made to the value of the 'metal ores and minerals', 'coal, coke and briquettes' and 'capital goods n.e.s.' components in the balance of payments series.
See the section Commodity value adjustment for details.
See the section Related releases for details.
