ABOUT THIS ISSUE

This publication updates the preliminary estimates released in Construction Work Done, Australia (cat. no. 8755.0) on 24 November 2010.


CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE

A new base year, 2008-09, has been introduced into the chain volume estimates which has resulted in revisions to growth rates in subsequent periods. In addition, the chain volume estimates have been re-referenced to 2008-09, thereby preserving additivity in the quarters after the reference year. Re-referencing affects the levels of, but not the movements in, chain volume estimates.


SIGNIFICANT REVISIONS THIS QUARTER

Compared with the current price estimates in original terms published in the previous issue of this publication:
  • The June quarter work done estimates have been revised upward by $58.1m. These revisions occurred predominantly in the Oil, gas, coal and other minerals commodities.
