More comprehensive and updated results will be released in Engineering Construction Activity, Australia (cat.no.8762.0) on 1 July 2008 and in Building Activity, Australia (cat. no. 8752.0) on 15 July 2008.
CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
There are no changes in this issue.
As a survey of approved building jobs, outcomes from the Building Activity Survey are subject to the accuracy of Building Approvals information used in preparing the collection. Some errors have been identified in Building Approvals information for a number of regions in Australia over recent years. Adjustments were made to the affected Building Approvals series and revisions were incorporated into the March 2008 issue of Building Approvals, Australia (cat. no. 8731.0), released on 1 May 2008.
As a result of the changes in the Building Approvals series there will be corresponding revisions to other building series. These changes have been incorporated into this issue going back to the September Quarter 2001.
For further information about these and related statistics, contact the National Information and Referral Service on 1300 135 070 or Paul Pamment on Adelaide (08) 8237 7647.
