CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
This edition of the Water Account, Australia features revisions, back-cast for the 2011-12 and 2012-13 reference periods. Revisions were made to both physical and monetary supply and use tables, the effects of which flowed through to most other tables.
Physical (volumetric) and monetary water supply and use estimates for 2011-12 and 2012-13 were revised for all states and territories, due to the development of more thorough compilation methods and the improved quality of collected data. Impacts of these revisions in physical water supply and use tables were relatively minor and mainly affected self-extracted and distributed water use breakdowns, rather than final consumption.
For these reasons please note that some of the 2011-12 and 2012-13 estimates presented in the 2013-14 edition of the Water Account, Australia, will differ to the corresponding estimates presented in the 2011-12 and 2012-13 publications.
