SIGNIFICANT EVENTS

As the ABS has previously advised, the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) introduced an enhanced set of reporting forms for Registrable Superannuation Entities (RSEs) from September quarter 2013. A number of data items provided from the new APRA collections significantly deviate from the previous ones, both in concept and definition. Where the impact on an affected series could not be estimated, the ABS has been moving forward the affected series using cautiously chosen indicators derived from other ABS collections that have a very strong historical correlation to these series. This methodology will continue to be applied until additional superannuation data collection requirements can be implemented by APRA which satisfy the conceptual and definitional requirements of the ABS. Users are advised to continue exercising caution when using superannuation data in this publication.
