This publication presents estimates of selected major indicators of manufacturing production for Australia.

This issue also includes annual summary data mainly related to yarns, textiles, clothing, hosiery and footwear, which were last published in the September quarter 2002 issue of this publication. See also paragraph 20 of the Explanatory Notes.

Seasonally adjusted and trend estimates to September quarter 2003 have been revised as a result of the annual reanalysis of seasonal factors. In addition, a methodological change has been introduced with the September quarter. Concurrent seasonal adjustment has replaced forward factor methodology for the Manufacturing Production seasonally adjusted series. See paragraphs 12-16 of the Explanatory Notes.

More detailed and other commodity items are collected by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) and are available to users on request and for a charge, as are monthly series for a limited number of data items. These data items are listed in paragraph 21 ofthe Explanatory Notes.


Estimates of change shown in this publication have been calculated using unrounded estimates and may be different from, but are more accurate than, movements obtained from the rounded estimates.
