DATA NOTES

On 20 July 2012 the ABS released the 2011 revision of the Functional Classification of Buildings. Building Approval statistics will be classified to the 2011 revision from the July 2012 issue. For more information refer to paragraph 14 of the explanatory notes.

The statistics for Western Australia in recent months may have been impacted by the WA Building Act 2011 which came into effect on 2 April 2012.

Since July 2011, Building Approval statistics have been produced using the Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS) , as well as the Australian Standard Geographical Classification (ASGC). From the July 2012 issue, Building Approvals data will no longer be available on an ASGC basis. This change will only affect statistics below the State/Territory level. Statistical Local Area data will be discontinued, however Local Government Area data will be available on the ABS Building Approvals web pages, under the Downloads tab. For further information, please refer to the Feature Article in the April 2011 issue.
