Revisions and changes

Revisions in this issue

This issue of the Australian System of National Accounts incorporates the 2021-22 annual supply and use tables. For information on the role of supply and use tables in the national accounts, see the 2021-22 supply and use tables section below. The 3.0% growth in GDP for 2022-23 is a 0.4 percentage point downward revision from the result published in June quarter 2023. There are also revisions to component series arising from the 2021-22 supply use benchmarks, new source data and data confrontation to balance the accounts. 

This issue incorporates improved source data and methodology for international trade in services deflators, implemented from 2019-20.

There are revisions to total gross mixed income (GMI) and by industry, for 2021-22 and 2022-23. GMI has been revised down due to revisions to 2021-22 Supply Use Gross Operating Surplus and Mixed Income (GOSMI) benchmarks and the implementation of updated source data in the method used to split GMI from GOSMI. The unincorporated units collected as part of the 2021-22 annual Economic Activity Survey (EAS), were used to supplement Australian Taxation Office unincorporated data to improve the method of separating GMI estimates from GOSMI. The new revised estimates of GMI indicate that previous GMI estimates were overstated especially when the economy was recovering from COVID-19 restrictions. The key series impacted by the revised GMI estimate was household net savings.

2021-22 supply and use tables

The ABS compiles supply and use (SU) tables to generate balanced annual estimates of Gross Domestic Product (GDP). The SU tables are compiled from 1994-95 to 2021-22 and result in the annual statistical discrepancies for this period being zero. Years prior to 1994-95 have a non-zero statistical discrepancy because SU tables have not been compiled, and so the data remain unbalanced. Similarly, estimates for the latest year (in this case 2022-23) have a statistical discrepancy because SU tables have not yet been constructed.

The supply table measures the goods and services produced in Australia and imports, while the use table measures the use of goods and services for intermediate consumption, final consumption, gross fixed capital formation, changes in inventories and exports. Domestic supply and intermediate consumption are cross-classified by industry and product categories, while the other components are simply classified by product category. The use table also provides information on the generation of income from production for each industry.

A large number of data sources are used to compile the national accounts, such as business activity surveys, household expenditure surveys, investment surveys, foreign trade statistics and government finance statistics. Revisions have been made to SU tables in 2019-20 and 2020-21 resulting from new and updated information received from these sources. Additionally, the SU tables have been revised in line with the updates made though the targeted historical revisions applied to the Australian National Accounts, see Improved estimates of the Annual National Accounts: Results of the 2023 historical revisions for further information.

The September quarter 2023 issue of Australian National Accounts: National Income, Expenditure and Product, to be released on 6 December 2023, will also incorporate these revisions.

The SU tables are available for download on the ABS.Stat website ( Data from the SU tables are used to construct the Australian National Accounts: Input-Output Tables. These products present structural detail underlying the Australian economy and provide weights for price indexes.

Australian National Accounts: Supply Use Tables 

The 2021-22 issue of Australian National Accounts: Supply Use Tables for the period 1994-95 to 2021-22 was published on 27 October 2023. The Supply Use tables were introduced in the annual National Accounts in 1998 as an integral part of the annual compilation of the Australian System of National Accounts. They are used to ensure Gross Domestic Product is balanced for all three approaches (production, expenditure and income) and provide the annual benchmarks from which the quarterly estimates are compiled.
