Retail Trade Survey: June 2017 quarter – corrected
Embargoed until 10:45am  –  30 October 2017
Corrections

We republished Retail Trade Survey: June 2017 quarter on 30 October 2017 to correct an error in the system used to model the contribution of units sourced from administrative data (GST) for the liquor and electrical and electronic goods industries.

The error affected the liquor and electrical and electronic goods industries:

  • liquor has been revised down by $25.32 million 
  • electrical and electronic goods has been revised down by $26.73 million.

This affected the core industries total (excluding vehicle related industries) and all industries total. It also affected all sales figures published for these industries including values and volumes, and the total values by region.

The other industries and stocks values have not changed due to this correction.

The seasonally adjusted sales volumes for all industries total in the June 2017 quarter has now been revised to an increase of 1.7 percent after previously being published as a 2.0 percent increase. There is no significant impact on quarterly GDP June 2017 results.
