This edition of Australian Environmental-Economic Accounts contains revisions to environmental taxes paid by industry and by households for the years 2003-04 through to 2012-13. Revisions are due to the implementation of two improvements to estimation methodology. Firstly, industry and household estimates of 'Other motor vehicle taxes', an unpublished component of 'Other environmental taxes', are now derived on the basis of relative shares of value of capital stock holdings of motor vehicles. These capital stock estimates are generated within the Australian System of National Accounts. Secondly, estimates of 'Crude oil and LPG' taxes paid by industry and household are now generated on the basis of their relative shares of gross energy use of specific fuel types, as published in Energy Account, Australia.

Time series estimates of total environmental taxes levied in Australia and estimates of environmental taxes by type of tax are unaffected by these revisions.

A quality declaration for Australian Environmental-Economic Accounts, 2016 is available within the Explanatory Notes section of this publication.
