Data series released in the Time Series Spreadsheets will be maintained and produced to the same timetable currently in place for this release.


DATA NOTES

In this release, revisions are provided for the time period from July 2016 to May 2018 and include revisions resulting from the Building Approvals Annual Review. Further information about the Annual Review and other potential sources of revisions can be found in the feature article released with the January 2016 8731.0 publication - "Revisions to Building Approval Statistics".

Small area data cubes will be made available in an “Additional Information” release five business days after the main publication. The data cubes will be for Statistical Area Level 2 and Local Government Areas. Release dates are published under the “Forthcoming Issues” section of the publication and in ABS Release Advice.
