Reissue of New Design of Australian National Accounts: National Income, Expenditure and Product (cat.no. 5206)

NEW PUBLICATION DESIGN - AUSTRALIAN NATIONAL ACCOUNTS: National Income, Expenditure and Product, (Cat. no. 5206.0)

In the June quarter 2003 release of Australian National Accounts: National Income, Expenditure and Product (cat.no. 5206.0) the ABS indicated its intention to make changes in the format of the next 5206.0 publication to be released on December 3, 2003. This publication has been prepared to give users a preview of the changes to be introduced. Concurrently, the complete set of reformatted Ausstats tables has been available. They can be accessed via the national accounts theme page under the heading "National Accounts News". To get to the theme page go to the ABS website and select: Themes => Economy=>National Accounts. A concordance between the old and new tables has also been developed and can also be accessed on the national accounts theme page.

The changes to be introduced have been developed in consultation with users of 5206.0 and largely involve a rearrangement of currently published time series into different tables, the introduction of additional series as appropriate and the move of some time series into an electronic only release format. At the same time the opportunity has been taken to add some additional information into the body of the paper publication such as a contents page, a complete listing of available electronic tables and a glossary. It is noted that while the precise content of the changes to the tables has been determined and will not be changed, there may be slight variations that are made to the surrounding content in preparation for the live release for September quarter 2003.

The data in the reformatted tables are sourced from the June quarter 2003 release of 5206.0. There are no updated series in this publication and this publication does not represent a revised or updated release of national accounts data. The June quarter data have been included so that users are able to verify whether they are appropriately accessing series which are now being presented in different tables or in a changed location within a table. Where new series are to be introduced these have been given a value of '999' to clearly indicate where data will be located in the new presentation.

If you have any problems accessing the new publication or you have any questions regarding the changes please contact Jim Dentrinos on 02 6252 7117 or by email j.dentrinos@abs.gov.au.
