Changes to data collection/processing

In 1995, it was decided to change the classification of the regions. Previously regions were classified by the Ready Mixed Concrete Association to which respondents belonged. Due to the limited usefulness for research purposes it was decided to use local government regions. Statistics for the new regions were calculated back to the March 1992 quarter.

From the first quarter in 1993, the Auckland ready-mixed concrete production data was extracted from the Ready-mixed Concrete survey, two weeks earlier than Ready-mixed Concrete Production release.
