ABOUT THIS ISSUE

This publication updates the preliminary estimates released in Construction Work Done, Australia (cat. no. 8755.0) on 29 August 2012.

This is the final issue for which a readily printable (PDF) publication will be released. As of the September 2012 issue (scheduled for release 16 January 2013), headline data items will be presented in HTML format. Data series released in the Time Series Spreadsheets will be maintained and produced to the same timetable currently in place for this release.

Time Series Spreadsheet Table 37 which disaggregates work done by the public sector by the level of government reporting will change in the September 2012 issue to combine Federal and State reported work. Local Government reported work will continue to be separately identified.


DATA NOTE

Several time series spreadsheets for the June quarter 2012 contain 'np' (not available for publication) annotations. This is due to confidential data being contained in these series.

Trend estimates should be used with caution due to the volatility caused by large engineering projects. For more details on trend estimates, please see paragraphs 22 to 24 of the explanatory notes.
