*IMPACT OF THE FLOODS
Flooding in Queensland began in late December 2010. It is expected that the first significant economic impact of this and floods in other states will be reflected in the January 2011 release of Retail Trade, Australia (cat. no. 8501.0) .
Data collection activities for December 2010, particularly in Queensland, were affected by the floods, however, this has not affected the data quality or reliability of the Australian series.
Original estimates for December 2010 may be subject to revision in future Retail Trade, Australia releases.
