REVISIONS

In this issue revisions have been made to the original series as a result of improved reporting of administrative and survey data. These revisions impact on:
  • Personal finance values for the period December 2009 to July 2010;
  • Commercial finance values for the period January 2008 to July 2010; and
  • Owner occupied and investment housing for the period December 2009 to July 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.
