CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
As advertised in the April 2011, July 2011, May 2012 and June 2012 issues, Building Approvals data is no longer available on an Australian Standard Geographical Classification basis from the July 2012 issue onwards. This change only affects statistics below the State/Territory level. Statistical Local Area data has been discontinued, however Local Government Area data will be available as part of the additional information releases 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.
Also as previously advertised, as of the July 2012 issue Building Approval statistics are classified to the 2011 revision of the Functional Classification of Buildings. 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.
From the September 2012 issue, the time series identifiers for 'Total value of building jobs' series on tables 69-77 will change. A correspondence between the old and new identifiers for each affected series will be detailed in a separate spreadsheet in the August 2012 issue.
From the September 2012 issue the secondary 'Additional Information' release will cease with all outputs combined back in to the main release.
A number of time series spreadsheets for July 2012 contain 'np' (not available for publication) annotations. This is due to confidential data being contained in these series.
