We have revised the September 2012 quarter price indexes for imports of primary food and beverages, and processed food and beverages. This was done to better align the coverage of these indexes to the Harmonised System (used to classify imports and exports), following amendments to the classification. The following table shows the before and after index numbers.

We have also revised the September 2012 and December 2012 figures for other services, total imports, and the services terms of trade, as a result of improving the way we measure price change for some import services.
