CONFRONTATION WITH OTHER ABS PUBLICATIONS
  • There are routinely differences in the numbers reported by Private New Capital Expenditure and Expected Expenditure (ABS Cat. No. 5625.0) and Engineering Construction Activity (ABS Cat. No. 8762.0) and Building Activity (ABS Cat. No. 8752.0). One reason for the differences is that Private New Capital Expenditure and Expected Expenditure records change of ownership while Engineering Construction Activity and Building Activity record construction activity. Change of ownership and construction activity may happen at different times. For a discussion of how the Survey of Private New Capital Expenditure and Expected Expenditure relates to Engineering Construction Activity and Building Activity Survey for the 'Mining Industry please refer to 'Mining Investment in ABS Publications (Feature Article)' published in Private New Capital Expenditure and Expected Expenditure (ABS Cat. No. 5625.0) - March quarter 2012, as well as the explanatory notes of the respective publications.
