REVISIONS IN THIS ISSUE

There are revisions in this issue due to the incorporation of more up-to-date data and concurrent seasonal adjustment.

Revisions this quarter to the various hours worked series and subsequent analytical series are to reflect recent revisions to Labour Force estimates, resulting from quarterly population rebenchmarking, the annual seasonal re-analysis process and the annual benchmarking of monthly hours worked to all jobs. Further information on these revisions is available in Labour Force, Australia (cat. no. 6202.0), in the February, March, and July 2016 issues respectively.

Revisions to the March quarter 2016 estimate of Real net national disposable income are predominantly driven by a revision in Primary income credits from non-residents, which consequentially revises the reinvested earnings series. Further information on this revision is provided in Balance of Payments and International Investment Position, Australia, June 2016 (cat. no. 5302.0).
