NOTES ON ESTIMATES
SEASONALLY ADJUSTED ESTIMATES
In 2012, as part of the transition from a quarterly to a biannual frequency, the ABS conducted an assessment of seasonality in the biannual AWE series. At the time, it was determined that moving to a biannual frequency eliminated seasonality for most AWE series. For these series the seasonally adjusted estimate was exactly equal to the original estimate.
The latest annual review of seasonal adjustment parameters was undertaken for the November 2016 release and found seasonal behaviour in some existing series which had no seasonal adjustment, while there were other series for which the existing assumed seasonal behaviour has now been assessed to be insufficient to warrant seasonal adjustment. These changes to the seasonal adjustment settings have been applied to the entire published series and the relevant series are annotated in the time series spreadsheets available from the Downloads tab of this issue. See paragraphs 58 - 61 of the Explanatory Notes.
