REVIEW OF THE PRODUCER AND INTERNATIONAL TRADE PRICE INDEXES

The ABS will publish the outcomes from a major review of the Producer and International Trade Price Indexes on 28 February 2012. More information on the review can be found in Information Paper: Review of the Producer and International Trade Price Indexes, 2011 (cat. no. 6427.0.55.003).


CHANGES IN FUTURE RELEASES

From the September quarter 2012, all index numbers will be calculated on a new reference base of 2011–12. This will result in the index numbers for each index series being reset to 100.0 for the financial year 2011–12. Period–to–period percentage changes may differ slightly to those previously published due to rounding and the re–referencing. These differences do not constitute a revision.

Further information on re–referencing can be found in chapter 12 of Information Paper: Producer and International Trade Price Indexes, Concepts, Sources and Methods, 2006 (cat. no. 6429.0).


ROUNDING

Any discrepancies between totals and sums of components are due to rounding.
