CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE

Both the Import Price Index and the Export Price Index data have been reweighted for the September quarter 2014. This is in line with the ABS policy of reweighting these indexes annually for the September quarter, as explained in paragraphs 8-10 of the Explanatory Notes. The new weighting patterns are provided in the Appendix of this issue. As a consequence of the annual reweighting, the points contribution data for the June quarter 2014 shown in Tables 2, 8 and 17 differ from that published in the previous issue of this publication.


CHANGES IN FUTURE ISSUES

From the December quarter 2014 the International Trade Price Indexes, Australia (cat. no. 6457.0) will be available from the ABS website in electronic format only. The September quarter 2014 release will be the final issue that contains a PDF version of the publication. There will be no change to the suite of International Trade Price Indexes published.


ROUNDING

Any discrepancies between totals and sums of components are due to rounding.


DATA REFERENCES

Data referenced in the Key Points and Commentary are available from the tables shown in this publication, or in the corresponding tables of this publication on the ABS website <http://www.abs.gov.au>.
