ABOUT THIS ISSUE

This publication contains detailed estimates from the quarterly Building Activity Survey. The data are subject to revision when returns from the following quarter are processed. Final data for the September quarter 2006 will be released in Building Activity, Australia (cat. no. 8752.0) on 19 April 2007.



CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE

The seasonally adjusted number of dwelling unit commencements for Northern Territory is now published in Tables 20 and 21. However, as a general rule, extreme care should be exercised in using the seasonally adjusted series for dwelling unit commencements in Northern Territory and Australian Capital Territory. The small numbers and volatile nature of these data makes reliable estimation of the seasonal pattern very difficult.



SIGNIFICANT REVISIONS THIS ISSUE

There are no significant revisions in this issue.
