REVISIONS IN THIS ISSUE
The estimates in this issue incorporate the 2011-12 annual supply and use tables. For information on the role of supply and use tables in the national accounts and the major revisions please see the 'Analysis of Results' section Australian System of National Accounts (ABS cat. no. 5204.0). There are also revisions in this issue due to the incorporation of more up-to-date data and concurrent seasonal adjustment.
CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
This issue also incorporates a methodological change to pre 1985-86 for the calculation and aggregation of Chain Volume (CVM) GDP expenditure components. This change removes a break in series so that CVM methodology is applied back to the beginning of the time series in 1959-60. This has allowed suppression of pre 1985-86 estimates for Real Gross Domestic Income and contributions to growth for GDP Expenditure components to be removed, which were required due to issues caused by the break in series. This change has resulted in some revisions to CVM components and aggregates of GDP expenditure. The methodology change has not resulted in significant revisions to total CVM GDP.
