APPENDIX 3 SEASONALLY ADJUSTED AND TREND ESTIMATES
SHORT-TERM RESIDENT DEPARTURES
The graph for Germany shows, in the seasonally adjusted series, the effect of Germany hosting the 2006 FIFA World Cup (9 June to 9 July). For Indonesia the graph shows the introduction of breaks in series due to the reduced level of travel experienced after the Bali bombings of 12 October 2002 and 1 October 2005. Further breaks were inserted in December 2003 and December 2006 as movements returned to levels closer to those recorded prior to the bombings. For residents departing to the United States of America the graph illustrates the effect of the 11 September 2001 terrorist attacks in that country on short-term departures of Australian residents to the United States of America.
With the reintroduction of the trend series for short-term resident departures (see Explanatory Notes, paragraph 25), breaks in series for the following graphs have been inserted from April 2009. These breaks are associated with the increase in movements that coincided with the introduction of initiatives to combat the Global Financial Crisis. For example, the Australian Government stimulus packages of October 2008 and February 2009, and cut-price air fares and travel packages. Additionally, travel from Australia has continued to benefit from the high Australian dollar.
