The ABS has reduced the influence of the incoming rotation group in Queensland for September 2016 estimates, with increased influence for the common sample (matched and unmatched). ABS encourages users of the GM1 data cube to exercise caution in interpreting incoming and outgoing rotation group changes for Queensland, and, to a lesser extent, Australia.

The simultaneous introduction of two rotation groups per month between May and August 2013 will result in a lower proportion of the sample being matched during this period. In June 2013, the new sample for the more remote, less populated areas and non-private dwellings were introduced for Tasmania, Northern Territory and the Australian Capital Territory. The new sample in these areas in New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, South Australia and Western Australia were introduced in July 2013. These are reflected in smaller estimates in the gross flow.
