Release Information

In Australia, Dwelling Unit Commencements (Housing Starts) statistics are compiled by the Australian Bureau of Statistics.

Contains preliminary estimates from the quarterly Building Activity Survey of the number of dwelling units commenced during the current quarter and revised estimates for the previous two quarters

The statistics were compiled on the basis of returns collected from builders and other individuals and organizations engaged in building activity. From the June quarter 2005, the quarterly survey consists of:

  • a sample survey of public and private sector residential building jobs valued at $50,000 or more
  • an indirect component based on building approval details for all residential building work approved from $10,000 to less than $50,000.

Each issue includes revisions to the previous quarter.
