This publication contains movement data which should not be interpreted as 'persons'. See paragraph 5 of the Explanatory Notes for more detail.
The statistics in this publication have been rounded to the nearest 100 for short-term movements and to the nearest 10 for permanent and long-term movements. As a result, sums of the components may not add exactly to totals. Analysis featured in this publication is based on unrounded data. Calculations made on rounded data may differ to those published.
CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
With the introduction of the Standard Australian Classification of Countries (SACC), Second Edition (cat. no. 1269.0), released 19 May 2008, two changes have influenced the dissemination of overseas arrivals and departures (OAD) data.
United Kingdom, Channel Islands and Isle of Man: Prior to the second edition of SACC, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man were included with the United Kingdom for the dissemination of OAD data. The Channel Islands (including Guernsey and Jersey) and the Isle of Man are no longer included with the United Kingdom as they are classified as separate countries. The numbers involved are negligible.
In tables and associated output (e.g. timeseries spreadsheets) labels for the United Kingdom, Channel Islands and Isle of Man will now be displayed as UK, CIs & IOM.
Serbia, Montenegro and Kosovo: Prior to the introduction of the second edition of SACC, Kosovo was included with Serbia and OAD data was disseminated as Serbia and Montenegro. Kosovo is no longer considered to be part of Serbia and is classified as a separate country.
In tables and associated output (e.g. timeseries spreadsheets and commentary) the label for these three countries will be Serbia, Montenegro and Kosovo.
For further information on country classification see paragraphs 7 and 8 of the Explanatory Notes.
Annual seasonal adjustment reanalysis: The annual reanalysis of the short-term visitor arrivals and short-term resident departures series will be undertaken after the release of this issue. Any revisions to the seasonally adjusted and trend estimates series will be incorporated with the release of July 2008 data.
For further information about these and related statistics, contact the National Information and Referral Service on 1300 135 070 or Anne Ward on Canberra (02) 6252 6871.
These documents will be presented in a new window.
