TIMES SERIES SPREADSHEETS
The wage price indexes in Tables 1, 2b, 3b, 4b, 5b, 7b, 8b and 9b are updated and released every quarter. The corresponding financial year wage price indexes in Tables 2a, 3a, 4a, 5a, 7a, 8a and 9a are updated and released each June quarter for the preceding financial year. There are no financial year indexes created for Table 1.
The financial year non-wage price indexes and labour price indexes in Tables 11 to 21 are compiled and released each September quarter and refer to the preceding financial year (ending June)
From the September quarter 2009, all index numbers have been released on a new reference base of 2008–09, that is, the numbers in each index series have been reset to equal 100.0 for the financial year 2008–09. Period-to-period percentage changes may differ slightly to those previously published due to re-referencing and rounding. These differences do not constitute a revision. See Appendix 2 for more detail.
September quarter 2008 was the final release of wage price indexes for occupation groups. Historical versions of the series covering the period September quarter 1997 to September quarter 2008 can be found in Publication Tables 7 and 8 on the ABS website in releases prior to December quarter 2008.
