Australian Banking Statistics

Due to the new reporting arrangements that have been put into place for the banks, and the change in legislation under which we collect financial data (from the Banking Act 1959 to the Financial Sector (Collection of Data Act) 2001), the last release of the Australian Banking Statistics is for March 2002. Data from March 2004 onwards can be found in the Monthly Banking Statistics publication.
