Statistical Indicators No. 1/2010
Economic indicators: NSW provides a snapshot of selected aspects of the NSW economy over the last four or five years. While the information presented is primarily concerned with trends in NSW, the paper also provides comparable statistical information on economic activity in the other Australian States and Territories.
The major source for much of the information in this paper is data collected by the Australian Bureau of Statistics. The figures used are the original numbers, unless otherwise indicated. Sources other than the Australian Bureau of Statistics have been used where relevant and are identified in the paper itself.
Information on the March 2010 quarter is included where available. Where the data for the March 2010 quarter has yet to be released, the information for the indicator reflects the most recent data for a complete quarter.
It is anticipated that an Economic Indicators: NSW paper will be published quarterly, updating each indicator to include the most recent data. However, some indicators such as Gross State Product will only be updated on an annual basis when new information becomes available.
