CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
  • As happens each December quarter, the Survey of Private New Capital Expenditure and Expected Expenditure produces expected capital expenditure data by state. These data are available from the Downloads tab of this issue on the ABS website.


REVISIONS
  • The September quarter 2012 estimate for total capital expenditure has been revised downwards $763 million (-1.9%) in current price, original terms. The revision was due to updated information received from survey respondents for Mining and Manufacturing. Within the total revision, equipment, plant and machinery has been revised downwards $66 million (-0.5%) and buildings and structures has been revised downwards $697 million (-2.6%). Revisions to seasonally adjusted estimates are due to revisions to original estimates as well as the concurrent methodology for deriving seasonal factors.
