CHANGES IN THE FORTHCOMING ISSUE - SEASONAL FACTORS

Seasonally adjusted and trend estimates for lending finance will be revised in the November 2012 issue as a result of the biennial reanalysis which takes account of additional data that have become available since the previous reanalysis. This reanalysis reviews the seasonal and trading day factors in more detail than is possible in the monthly processing cycle and assesses the appropriateness of any prior corrections.


REVISIONS

In this issue revisions have been made to the original series as a result of improved reporting of survey and administrative data. These revisions have impacted on:
  • Owner occupied housing values for September 2012
  • Commercial finance values for September 2012
  • Lease finance values for September 2012.

Seasonally adjusted and trend series have been revised as a result of revisions to the original series, the incorporation of estimates for the latest month and the revision of seasonal factors due to the concurrent seasonal adjustment methodology.
