CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE

There are no revisions to the original estimates.

A seasonal break has been included in the Electrical and electronic goods retailing sub-industry, the Household goods industry and Total Retail from the November 2017 reference month. This accounts for changes in consumer buying patterns due to Black Friday sales. The break has lead to revisions to the seasonally adjusted estimate for these series. It will not impact related publications, including Australian National Accounts: National Income, Expenditure and Product (cat. no. 5206.0).

This issue includes updated online retail turnover estimates for the November 2019 reference month. The estimates are provided and explained in the appendix section of this publication.
