DECEMBER QUARTER

Summary Comments

Agriculture, forestry and fishing
  • The seasonally adjusted estimate rose 1.3%. This increase was primarily driven by livestock production that was supported by strong international demand. Recovery in cotton and a modest increase in wheat also supported the increase.

Mining
  • The seasonally adjusted estimate rose 1.1% following a strong September quarter result (5.4%). The increase was driven by Oil and gas extraction (3.5%), Coal mining (1.5%) and Iron ore mining (1.3%). Other mining (-5.1%) and Exploration and mining support services (-0.8%) declined with Exploration and mining support services declining for the last seven quarters.

Manufacturing
  • The seasonally adjusted estimate fell 2.1% with declines in Petroleum, coal and chemicals (-5.2%), Metal products (-4.5%), Machinery and equipment (-4.0%) and Food, beverage and tobacco (-0.9%). Manufacturing has declined six of the last eight quarters.

Accommodation and Food Services
  • The seasonally adjusted estimate fell 1.7% driven by a weak quarter for Accommodation services.

Information Media and Telecommunications
  • The seasonally adjusted estimate rose 2.7% driven by a rise in Telecommunication services. The division has risen for the past eight quarters.

Rental, Hiring and Real Estate Services
  • The seasonally adjusted estimate rose 2.8%, with rises across both subdivisions.

Arts and Recreation Services
  • The seasonally adjusted estimate rose 2.2% with Sports and recreation activities the strongest driver.
