IMPACT OF THE FLOODS

Flooding in Queensland began in late December 2010. It is expected that the first significant economic impact of this and floods in other states will be reflected in the March quarter 2011 release of this publication.

Price collection for the December quarter 2010 was not affected by the floods.


ANZSIC 2006 CORRESPONDENCE

From the September quarter 2009, data available on the ABS website in tables 10-23 and associated commentary are based on the Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification (ANZSIC) 2006 edition. Data in previous issues were based on the ANZSIC 1993 edition.

Correspondences between the old (ANZSIC 1993) and new (ANZSIC 2006) classification are available as a data cube that can be downloaded via the 'Downloads' tab associated with this publication on the ABS website <http://www.abs.gov.au>. These correspondences are available on the ABS website and in this issue.

As a result of the September quarter 2009 changes, several tables released in this publication and on the ABS website also changed. A concordance between the old and new PPI tables was released as part of the Information Paper: Update on ANZSIC 2006 Implementation for Producer and International Trade Price Indexes, Australia, 2009 (cat. no. 6427.0.55.002). This concordance is also available as an appendix in this issue.


ROUNDING

Any discrepancies between totals and sums of components are due to rounding.
