The ABS announced it was undertaking a review of International Accounts statistical outputs in the March quarter 2015 issue of Balance of Payments and International Investment Position, Australia (cat. no. 5302.0) and related monthly releases of International Trade in Goods and Services, Australia (cat. no. 5368.0). The ABS received a number of submissions from stakeholders which influenced the proposals considered and resulting outcomes.
Based on analysis of the range of statistics and reflecting user comments, the ABS is making changes to the International Accounts outputs to ensure they provide the most relevant and useful data to inform users about Australia's interactions with the rest of the world.
Following the review, this information paper features mock-up tables as stated in appendix 2 of the Feature Article: Outcomes of the review of International Accounts statistical outputs. Changes will be implemented in the December quarter 2015 issue of Balance of Payments and International Investment Position, Australia (cat. no. 5302.0) to be released on 1 March 2016.
The mock-up tables are available from the 'Downloads' tab.
