ABOUT THIS ISSUE

This publication provides an early indication of trends in building and engineering construction activity. The data are estimates based on a response rate of approximately 85% of the value of both building and engineering work done during the quarter. More comprehensive and updated results will be released in Engineering Construction Activity, Australia (cat.no. 8762.0) on 1 October 2014 and in Building Activity, Australia (cat. no. 8752.0) on 15 October 2014.


DATA NOTES

This release includes revisions to the Engineering Construction Survey. Engineering Construction data was revised back to September 2012.

Trend estimates should be used with caution due to the volatility caused by large engineering projects. For more details on trend estimates, please see paragraphs 24 to 26 of the explanatory notes.
