RIS/WIS margins alignment

Data from the Retail industry survey and the Wholesale industry survey has again been used to improve the alignment of the Retail and Wholesale margins to IOPC codes in all of the 2008–09 releases. The same process was followed in the 2007–08 tables.

Additions to Table 40

Table 40 of the 2008–09 release: Industry and Product Concordances now includes the complete IOPC(2009) and the IOIG(2009) classifications.

Outcomes from data reconciliation with the Energy Accounts

Data in the 2008–09 Input Output tables has been reconciled against the Energy Account, Australia Hybrid (Physical, monetary energy use) table for the first time. Data has been reconciled for each energy product at the level of Total Intermediate Use, as well as for HFCE and exports. The reconciliation of monetary estimates in Hybrid tables and I–O tables will be considered in future releases of both publications.

A number of adjustments were made to the Australian production of mining commodities, including Black Coal, Liquefied Natural Gas, Natural gas (in the gaseous state), and Brown coal–ignite as a result of the data reconciliation between existing data sources (AIC and State Mines data) and the Energy Accounts. Mining commodity trade data was also adjusted in line with the National Accounts treatment of economic activity in the Timor Seas.

The Margin and Total intermediate use of Electricity transmission, distribution and on-selling and the total intermediate use of LNG have also been adjusted.
