This paper provides updated statistical information on key economic indicators for New South Wales, thereby presenting an updated snapshot of the NSW economy and providing relevant points of comparison with other Australian States and Territories.
Statistics are updated to the end of the most recent quarter available. Most indicators have thus been updated to include the December 2012 or March 2013 quarters. There are no updates to the sections on Gross State Product, agricultural production and income, and business investment.
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.
