Topics which have been updated with new data in this month's issue of SA Stats include: Demography; Labour Force; State Accounts; Consumption; Investment; Construction; Housing Finance; International Merchandise Trade; and Water.

There have been changes to the Retail Trade data presented in this publication. Previous issues of SA Stats included a graph showing monthly retail turnover at the industry level. Due to changes in the Retail Business Survey in July 2008, estimates at the industry group by state level are now only published on a quarterly basis. The graph showing retail turnover by industry group has been removed from this issue of SA Stats, but it will reappear in the November 2008 issue and then quarterly as new data becomes available.

A new article ' Adelaide's Suburbs of Advantage and Disadvantage' is included in this month's SA Stats. This article highlights suburbs in Adelaide which are relatively advantaged and disadvantaged as measured by the Socio-economic Indexes for Areas (SEIFA). The article shows that Adelaide has an over-representation of disadvantaged areas compared to the rest of Australia and an under-representation of advantaged areas. The article also includes a case study on the suburb of Adelaide, demonstrating how a suburb can have a different level of relative advantage and disadvantage depending on which SEIFA index is used.
