Please note that non-residential building approvals data for June 2012 (1 month) at the LGA level have been suppressed by the ABS due to confidentiality issues. In order to continue showing a full financial year’s worth of data on the site, it has been necessary for .id to estimate the June figures as part of the 2012-13 financial year total. This has been done with reference to the state total for non-residential building approvals, and the ratio of building approvals in the local area to the state total in previous months. It is expected to have minimal impact on the numbers for most areas.
