All growth rates for the financial aggregates are seasonally adjusted, and adjusted for the effects of the breaks in series recorded in the footnotes to tables. Figures showing the levels of financial aggregates are not adjusted for series breaks.

Historical levels and growth rates for the financial aggregates have been revised from 1996 onwards owing to the resubmission of data by financial intermediaries and the revision of cash management trust data by the ABS.
