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 impact on:
  • Personal finance and commercial finance for the period August 2010 to September 2010; and
  • Investment housing for the period August 2010 to September 2010.

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.


CHANGES IN FORTHCOMING ISSUES

The seasonally adjusted and trend estimates of lending finance will be revised in the December 2010 issue as a result of the annual seasonal re-analysis. This re-analysis reviews the seasonal and trading day factors in more detail than is possible in the quarterly processing cycle and assesses the appropriateness of any prior corrections. Please refer to paragraph 20 of the explanatory notes for more information regarding seasonal re-analysis.
