4 Data quality issues have been identified with the capture and coding of state or territory of stay/residence from incoming passenger cards from July 2017 onwards. Data from the cards is currently being re-processed to correct these issues and will be re-supplied to the ABS. Once this is complete, ABS will revise OAD statistics from July 2017 onwards. Until the data is revised, users should exercise caution when comparing statistics for state or territory of stay/residence for this period with previous periods.
