3401.0Overseas Arrivals and Departures, Australia, September 2017
The monthly Overseas Arrivals and Departures (OAD) publication contains statistics on the travel movements of persons arriving in, and departing from, Australia.

Statistics on permanent and long-term movements (i.e. one year or more) are also available, however, permanent and long-term movements in this publication are not an appropriate source for migration statistics.

Replacement Content
Gender Indicators, Australia, September 2017
Minor cosmetic changes have been made to text within some of the pages from the September 2017 release. These minor changes were made to coincide with November 2017 replacement content for the Economic Security datacube, which now includes 2015-16 Survey of Income and Housing (SIH) data that was unable to be provided with the September 2017 release of Gender Indicators.

Corrections have also been applied to 2013-14 data from the Survey of Income and Housing for Tables 2.13, 2.14 and 2.15 in the Economic Security datacube.
Additional Information
Producer Price Indexes, Australia, September 2017
PPI for output of the Retail Trade industry (RTPI) cannot be compiled with the same timeliness as other PPIs. The basic data required for the construction of the PPI for the output of the retail trade industry are quarterly sales and cost of goods sold (COGS). These economic flow data cannot be collected until some time after the end of the reference quarter. By comparison, price indexes for goods and some services are based on point in time prices prevailing at selected dates during the quarter. Further, calculation of the RTPI requires the latest period CPI data to be available for price updating purposes. Because of these constraints, the ABS will publish RTPI as a stand-alone index. This will occur until the necessary systems and processes are in place to enable RTPI to be incorporated into the Stage of production (SOP) framework. The implementation of RTPI in the SOP indexes will be communicated ahead of time in Producer Price Indexes, Australia (cat.no.6427.0).

Original, seasonally adjusted and trend estimates for Australia, as well as some original state and territory data, are provided in current prices and chain volume measures terms. This is the major source of data used to compile the national accounts estimates for private gross fixed capital formation on dwellings, and other buildings and structures.
