In the Information Paper: Outcome of the Review of the Producer and International Trade Price Indexes, 2012 (cat. no. 6427.0.55.004) the ABS undertook to release an updated Producer and International Trade Price Indexes: Concepts, Sources and Methods (cat. no. 6429.0) publication. This will be released December 11, 2013.
Any discrepancies between totals and sums of components are due to rounding.
Data referenced in the Key Points and Commentary are available from the tables shown in this publication, or in the corresponding tables of this publication on the ABS website <https://www.abs.gov.au>.
CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
Both the Import Price Index and the Export Price Index data have been reweighted for the September quarter 2013. Both indexes are reweighted annually. See paragraphs 8-10 of the Explanatory Notes for further details. The new weighting patterns are provided in Appendix 1 of this issue. As a consequence of the annual reweighting, the points contribution data for the June quarter 2013 shown in Tables 2, 8 and 17 differ from that published in the previous issue of this publication.
For further information about these and related statistics, contact the National Information and Referral Service on 1300 135 070.
These documents will be presented in a new window.
