CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
Commencing with this quarter, the frame information and sample design for the Survey of Private New Capital Expenditure have been improved by incorporation of the 2006 Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification (ANZSIC), (cat. no. 1292.0), replacing the 1993 ANZSIC, the inclusion of non-employing businesses which contribute significantly to economic activity and integration of updated size variable information for each business on the frame.
These changes have resulted in statistical impacts on our previously published historic data series. This publication and other Survey of Private New Capital Expenditure outputs released on or after November 26, 2009, feature revised historic series which align past published estimates to the estimates including statistical changes introduced from this quarter. An information paper (cat. no. 5625.0.55.001) describing these changes in more detail is available at www.abs.gov.au.
CAPEX AS A PARTIAL INDICATOR OF THE NATIONAL ACCOUNTS
Part of the compilation of Capital Expenditure estimates is confrontation with data from a variety of sources assembled in the national accounts framework as part of the process of compiling the quarterly Australian National Accounts,(cat. no. 5206.0). The September quarter 2009 Australian National Accounts will be released two weeks later than usual due to the introduction of new standards. This means that the confrontation has been less comprehensive than usual. Caution should be exercised in using data in this publication as an indicator of capital expenditure in the National Accounts.
For further information about these and related statistics, contact the National Information and Referral Service on 1300 135 070 or Paul Doran on Sydney (02) 9268 4357.
