CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
This issue introduces International Trade in Goods and Services statistics that have been compiled according to revised international standards, the Balance of Payments and International Investment Position Manual, sixth edition (BPM6). This has resulted in revisions to some time series.
From March quarter 2009 industry statistics reported in Table 6.9 are on the basis of Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification (ANZSIC), 2006 edition. This edition replaces the 1993 edition which has been in use since 1994. The new edition of ANZSIC was developed to provide a more contemporary industrial classification system taking into account issues such as changes in the structure and composition of the economy, changing user demands and compatibility with major international classification standards.
Industry data up to December quarter 2007 are only available on an ANZSIC 1993 basis and data on an ANZSIC 2006 basis are shown from March quarter 2008, although for all quarters of 2008 data is available on the basis of both editions of ANZSIC.
EXTENDED TIME SERIES
Long time series datacubes for this publication are now provided on the ABS website.
