RE-ISSUE TIME SERIES SPREADSHEETS ONLY

The indexes for Non-building construction (412) and Road and bridge construction (4121) for Tasmania, Northern Territory and Australian Capital Territory are not available for publication and have been removed from time series spreadsheet Tables 15 and 16, Output of the General Construction Industry, Index Numbers and Percentage Changes (6427010.xls).

NOTES

This information paper advises users of proposed changes to the time series spreadsheets associated with the publication Producer Price Indexes, Australia (cat. no. 6427.0), resulting from the conversion of the current Lotus 1-2-3 .wks spreadsheets to Excel .xls format..


A concordance between the current time series spreadsheet tables (Lotus 1-2-3 .wks format) and the proposed new tables (in Excel .xls format) is included below.


Also provided under the 'Details' tab are copies of the new tables providing time series up to and including December quarter 2005, comparable to that released on 23 January 2006.


These changes are due to come into effect with the release of the March quarter 2006 issue of 6427.0 on 24 April 2006. From that date, the current Lotus 1-2-3 .wks spreadsheets will be discontinued.


The new product provides a range of benefits for time series clients including:

  • combining some existing tables thus reducing the number of individual tables that may need to accessed
  • providing access to a number of index series that were previously only available as unpublished data on request
  • consistent and complete series metadata is provided for every series displayed
  • a readily recognised file format (Excel) that will 'auto launch' in most business IT environments
  • built in features on which clients can base reliable processing systems.

The new format files can be opened, read and manipulated using Excel 5.0/95 (or equivalent), however, some features will not be available unless you have Excel 97 (or better).
