CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE

Quarterly chain volume data incorporate a new base year, 2001-02, which has resulted in revisions to growth rates, small in most cases, for subsequent periods. In addition, the reference year has been advanced to 2001-02, thereby preserving additivity in the quarters after the reference year. Re-referencing resulted in revisions to levels, but not growth rates, for all periods (see paragraphs 19-20 of the Explanatory Notes).

Area statistics are now classified to the Australian Standard Geographical Classification, 2003 Edition (see paragraph 21 of the Explanatory Notes).


DATA NOTES

A special article 'Functional Classification of Buildings', containing data for 2001-02 and 2002-03 was included in the September 2003 issue of Building Approvals, Australia (cat. no. 8731.0). This and other articles are available from the ABS web site at <www.abs.gov.au>. Go to the 'Feature Articles' link on the home page, then select 'Industry/Construction'.


REVISIONS THIS QUARTER

There have been revisions made to total dwelling units since the last issue of this publication, resulting in 4 fewer dwellings in 2002-03.
