CHANGES TO STATISTICS PRESENTED ON A COUNTRY BASIS
From this issue there are changes to the ABS trade country classification impacting on time series spreadsheets. The changes result from the recognition of new countries by the United Nations and the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
Three new countries have been added to the time series tables containing all countries:
The country Serbia and Montenegro has ceased. These changes are backdated to apply from the January 2009 reference month.
Time series affected in this publication are: Tables 14a, 14b, 36a-36j and 37a-37h.
Note that Table 14 of this publication, showing data for selected countries on a merchandise trade basis, will not be changed.
Changes have also been made to the ABS trade overseas port and ABS trade Australian port classifications, however, this has not resulted in any changes to publication tables and time series spreadsheets. Port data are available via tailored user pays consultancies.
For further details about the introduction of new ABS country and port classifications refer to the Information paper: Changes to International Trade in Goods Statistics - Countries and Ports (cat. no. 5368.0.55.013) released on 9 July 2009.
