  • Owner occupied housing values for the periods November 2013 to January 2014
  • Personal finance values for the periods December 2013 to January 2014
  • Commercial finance values for December 2013.

Seasonally adjusted and trend series are revised as a result of revisions to the original series, the incorporation of estimates for the latest month and the revision of seasonal factors due to the concurrent seasonal adjustment methodology.
