ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Large scale innovation is planned as part of the ABS forward work plan. This innovation includes major upgrades to existing systems, processes and methodologies.

The ABS has deferred selected commitments from the Information paper: Outcome of the Review of the Producer and International Trade Price Indexes, 2012 (cat. no. 6427.0.55.004) pending upgrades to existing systems. Appendix 1 provides a full list of PPI commitments from the paper.

In the Information Paper: Outcome of the Review of the Producer and International Trade Price Indexes, 2012 (cat. no. 6427.0.55.004) the ABS undertook to release an updated Producer and International Trade Price Indexes: Concepts, Sources and Methods (cat. no. 6429.0) publication. This will be released on August 20, 2014.


REVISIONS TO MARCH QUARTER 2014 EXPORT PRICE INDEX

This issue of International Trade Price Indexes, Australia (cat. no. 6457.0) includes revisions to the Export Price Index (EPI) for the March quarter 2014. These revisions incorporate information not available at the time of compiling the March quarter 2014 EPI. The EPI has been revised from 3.6% to 2.8% in the March quarter 2014. The affected series are annotated in this publication and in the time series spreadsheets and data cubes.


CHANGES IN FUTURE ISSUES

From the December quarter 2014 the International Trade Price Indexes, Australia (cat. no. 6457.0) will be available from the ABS website in electronic format only. The September quarter 2014 release will be the final issue that contains a PDF version of the publication. There will be no change to the suite of International Trade Price Indexes published.
