CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
A recent assessment of Table 4 Median Price (unstratified) and Table 5 Number of Transfers (Capital City and Rest of State) shows that the current quarter data is revised in the following quarter. As a result of this assessment and user feedback, these tables will now include a 'flag' on each cell for the current quarter stating that data is preliminary ('p') and subject to revision.
Revisions apply to estimates for the second and third most recent quarters of the total value of dwelling stock (see paragraph 38 of the Explanatory Notes) and to median counts and transfers (see paragraph 44 of the Explanatory Notes).
These documents will be presented in a new window.
