  • Personal finance values for the period November 2010 to June 2013
  • Commercial finance values for the period November 2010 to June 2013.

Seasonally adjusted and trend series are revised as a result of revisions to the original series, the incorporation of estimates for the latest month and the revision of seasonal factors due to the concurrent seasonal adjustment methodology.
