Around the end of the financial year there is a greater variation in business reporting, as businesses finalise their employee's earning information and the financial year is reset in payroll systems. This variability in reporting makes the production of high quality wages indexes difficult. As a result, wages estimates have been temporarily withdrawn from this release, until more complete data is received for July. As such, wages estimates have been replaced with 'not available' (na or NA) in both tables and data downloads throughout this release.
The suspension of wages estimates has also effected the early withdrawal of Data download Tables 1, 2 and 3, which were planned for retirement in the transition to monthly releases. Underlying payroll jobs data continue to be available in Table 4 of the Data downloads.
