MARCH KEY POINTS
CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
This issue includes updated quarterly measures of total retail turnover per capita. The full time series is available from the Downloads tab of this publication on the ABS website.
Updated online retail turnover estimates for the March 2015 reference month are provided and explained within the appendix section of this publication.
Trend break corrections have been applied to the September 2014 and December 2014 quarterly estimates of Electrical and electronic goods retailing consistent with the treatment applied to the monthly series.
A revision has been applied in this issue to the quarterly original estimates for Food retailing in December 2014. This is consistent with the revision applied to the monthly original estimates for that series in the January 2015 publication.
Revisions to quarterly seasonally adjusted estimates are due revisions to the original estimates as well as the concurrent methodology for deriving seasonal factors. Revisions to the quarterly trend estimates are also due to the inclusion of the above trend break corrections and other series corrections previously applied in the monthly series.
For information on seasonal adjustment and trend estimation please refer to the explanatory notes of this publication.
