DECEMBER QTR KEY POINTS

TREND ESTIMATES
  • Industrial production levels have risen steadily since September quarter 1995 except for the second half of 1996 when production levels remained static. Total industrial production was 2.7% higher than a year earlier and 4.0% higher than two years earlier. Strongest growth was by the Mining industry.
  • In the December quarter 1997, industrial production rose by 0.6% overall but mixed results came from the major industries. Production by Mining and by Electricity, gas and water industries grew but manufacturing production fell slightly.
  • Production levels fell in five of the nine manufacturing subdivisions. The largest fall was by Metal product manufacturing (-2.6%). The largest rise was by Printing, publishing and recorded media (3.5%).

SEASONALLY ADJUSTED ESTIMATES
