REVISIONS IN THIS ISSUE

The September quarter 2007 Manufacturing industry estimate has been revised upwards by $167 million or 5.9% in original terms. This was the result of a particular unit under-reporting their expenditure in the September quarter. Remaining revisions to September quarter data are a result of the replacement of previously imputed data, which is a normal occurrence.
