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. A resolution to these issues is in the process of being implemented. This will soon be completed and the revised OAD data from July 2017 to February 2018 will be released with the March issue of Overseas Arrivals and Departures, Australia (cat. no. 3401.0) scheduled for release on 15 May. 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.
