CHANGES TO THIS ISSUE
  • Each September quarter the reference and base year for chain volume estimates for the Survey of Private New Capital Expenditure are updated. A new base year, 2011-12, has been introduced into the chain volume estimates which has resulted in minor revisions to growth rates in subsequent periods. In addition, the chain volume estimates have been re-referenced to 2011-12. Additivity is preserved in the quarters of the reference year and subsequent quarters. Re-referencing affects the level of, but not the movements in, chain volume estimates.
  • As happens each year, a seasonal re-analysis has been undertaken based on estimates up to and including the June quarter 2013. This re-analysis has resulted in a downward revision to total Mining capital expenditure in current price, seasonally adjusted terms of -$595m (-2.5%). There were other minor revisions to industry estimates producing a net revision to total capital expenditure of -$421m (-1.0%). In chain volume measure, seasonally adjusted terms the revision to total Mining capital expenditure was -$354m (-1.5%). There were other minor revisions to industry estimates producing a net revision to total capital expenditure of -$555m (-1.4%).
