Early Release of Retail Trade Data

The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) has discovered that some data relating to ABS publication no. 8501.0 Retail Trade, Australia, March 2012 was emailed to six clients at 11.10 am on Monday, 7 May 2012. This was twenty minutes before the official release of the publication.

The ABS recognises that this is a breach of our release policy. I have instigated a full review of the circumstances leading up to the release to understand why it happened and to prevent it from happening again.

Queries relating to this incident can be directed to ABS Corporate Communications on 1300 175 070.
