CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
The Input to the House construction industry price index has been re-weighted from the December quarter 2013. The weights for the Input to the House construction industry price index have been derived from representative housing construction activity for the average of the three years ending 2010-11. The new weighting pattern is provided as an Appendix to this issue.
Any discrepancies between totals and sums of components are due to rounding.
