CHANGES IN FORTHCOMING ISSUES
As part of the ongoing quaIity review of the Livestock Collection, a coverage exercise has been undertaken to review the quality of the collection sample frame and enable revision of the constant factor (applied to account for production from small abattoirs). Updates to the sample frame and constant factor will be applied prior to the release of the October 2010 issue of Livestock and Meat, Australia (cat. no. 7218.0.55.001). Whilst such updates will assist in ensuring the quality of estimates from the October 2010 cycle onwards, these updates are anticipated to have a minor impact on the collection estimates.
Further information will be provided in the October 2010 issue of Livestock and Meat, Australia (cat. no. 7218.0.55.001).
For further information about these and related statistics, contact the National Information and Referral Service on 1300 135 070.
