RELEASE OF QUANTITY INFORMATION FOR EXPORTS OF LIQUEFIED NATURAL GAS
Following a confidentiality review, quantity information for exports of liquefied natural gas (AHECC 27111100) will be released from the October 2015 issue of International Trade in Goods and Services, Australia (cat. no. 5368.0) and will extend back to July 2015. Additional analysis will be included in the Selected Commodities section of the Analysis and Comments. This change will not impact on time series spreadsheets in this publication, however, will impact on detailed export statistics at the AHECC level available on request.
OUTCOMES OF THE REVIEW OF INTERNATIONAL ACCOUNTS STATISTICAL OUTPUTS
As Australia's national statistical agency, the ABS provides a statistical service that informs discussion and decision making. It is important we ensure we are producing data that are required and in demand. In the area of Balance of Payments and International Investment Statistics, the ABS has moved over the years to increase the range and extent of detail provided in the statistics.
The ABS announced it was undertaking a review of International Accounts statistical outputs in the March quarter 2015 issue of Balance of Payments and International Investment Position, Australia (cat. no. 5302.0) and monthly releases of International Trade in Goods and Services, Australia (cat. no. 5368.0). The ABS received a number of submissions from stakeholders which influenced the proposals considered and resulting outcomes.
Based on our analysis of the range of statistics and reflecting on user comments, the ABS is making changes to the International Accounts outputs to ensure we are producing the most relevant and useful data to inform users of Australia’s interactions with the rest of the world. These changes are outlined in the Feature Article: Outcomes of the Review of International Accounts Statistical Outputs published in the June quarter 2015 issue of Balance of Payments and International Investment Position, Australia (cat. no. 5302.0), released on 1 September 2015. Mock-up tables stated in appendix 2 of the Feature Article will be available on the ABS website on 17 February 2016 as additional information.
