This October 2013 edition of Economics Indicators: NSW updates statistical information on key economic indicators, 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 June or September 2013 quarters. There are no updates to the sections on Gross State Product, wages, agricultural production and income, and business investment, as this is annual data released by the ABS in November. This edition has included two new economic indicators: quarterly house price indexes for the eight capital cities; and quarterly mineral and petroleum exploration expenditure statistics for the States and the Northern Territory.
