Economic Survey of Manufacturing: September 2013 quarter
Embargoed until 10:45am  –  09 December 2013
Revisions

We have revised the meat and dairy product manufacturing sales volume series from the June 2010 quarter to the June 2013 quarter. This revision was made because we updated the price deflator used for this industry.

These revisions also affect the volume of closing stocks of finished goods.

The graphs below show how the new sales volumes and finished goods closing stock volumes compare with previously published data for meat and dairy product manufacturing.

Graph, Meat and dairy product manufacturing sales volumes, quarterly, September 2009 to September 2013.

Graph, Meat and dairy product manufacturing, finished goods closing stock volumes, quarterly, September 2009 to September 2013.

Data for all manufacturing (volumes and finished goods closing stocks) is also revised to reflect these changes. The change has no impact on the all manufacturing excluding meat and dairy series.

As an example, the table below shows changes for the June 2013 quarter.
