CHANGES IN FORTHCOMING ISSUES
IMPROVEMENT TO SEASONAL ADJUSTMENT METHOD OF CURRENT PRICE VALUES OF METAL ORES AND MINERALS AND OF OTHER MINERAL FUELS
An improvement will be applied to the seasonal adjustment method of current price goods credits components, 'metal, ores and minerals' and 'other mineral fuels'. From September quarter 2005 onwards, seasonal factors derived from the corresponding chain volume measures will be applied to seasonally adjust the current price values. As a result of this improvement, trend break corrections previously applied to the 'metal ores and mineral' trend series will be removed. This improvement will be implemented from the March quarter 2017 issue of this publication and the March 2017 issue of the International Trade in Goods and Services, Australia (cat. no. 5368.0) publication.
