ABOUT THIS PUBLICATION
This publication provides monthly estimates of stocks and use for wheat grain for selected manufacturing and agricultural businesses, licensed exporters and bulk grain handlers. These estimates are compiled from various surveys conducted by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), including the Grain Handlers Stocks Survey, Wheat Use Survey, Wheat Export Sales Survey, and from administrative data relating to wheat grain exports. Estimates from the surveys are combined with export trade data to provide monthly estimates of the volume of wheat grain stored, used, or committed for use.
The Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics and Sciences (ABARES) uses these data to compile a monthly report on the Australian wheat industry. The current scope and coverage of the collections is understood to account for the majority of Australia's grain stored, used and committed.
For more information on stocks of grain held by bulk grain handlers, see Stocks of Grain Held by Bulk Handling Companies and Grain Traders, Australia (cat. no. 7122.0.55.001).

IN THIS AND FORTHCOMING ISSUES
This issue of Wheat Use and Stocks, Australia (cat. no. 7307.0) is the last in its current format. From the October 2011 issue, the data will be presented in line with changing user needs and expectations. The PDF publication will no longer be produced, and will be replaced with enhanced on-line content, in an e-magazine style. Data produced will refer mainly to stocks of wheat grain stored by bulk grain handlers and exports data. All data collected will also be available in downloadable data cubes. The name of the publication will also change to Wheat Stocks and Exports, Australia (cat. no. 7307.0). It is expected that more improvements will be made in the future to further enhance the relevance, accessibility and timeliness of the publication.
These documents will be presented in a new window.
