16/11/2017 Note: In September quarter 2016 the ABS published a Feature Article, Review of the Retail Trade Price Index (RTPI) assessing the concepts, data sources and methods used to compile the RTPIs. Feedback from users was sought as part of the review.

The outcomes from the review include:

  • The ABS will continue to publish a quarterly national RTPI; and
  • State and outlet data will no longer be collected from providers.

The ABS will implement the outcomes of the review in the September quarter 2017 RTPI, which is scheduled for release as a data cube on 21 November 2017.

As a result of the review, Table 31 Experimental Producer Price Index for the Output of the Retail Trade Industry will be revised back to the December quarter 2003 and Tables 32 and 33 will no longer be published. A sample data cube has been provided for information.
