        The ABS is developing a coordinated approach to the collection of selected economic data. Statistical collections for sales, inventories, wages and salaries, new capital expenditure and company profits will come under the banner of the Quarterly Economy Wide Survey (QEWS). The new approach will deliver more coherent and consistent data to the Quarterly National Accounts. It will also allow providers more flexibility in the medium and timing of data collection and reporting. For more information on the development of the QEWS please contact Michael Sharpe on (02) 9268 4174.
