Australian Capital Territory and Northern Territory are not shown due to insufficient numbers to get a ‘seasonally adjusted’ figure.

The following chart shows annual approvals per state for the years ended June 1989, 1999 and 2009.

Year NSW VIC QLD SA WA TAS
1988/89 53,198 40,791 47,453 11,330 28,031 3,917
1998/99 52,404 39,771 30,348 7,885 20,618 1,424
2008/09 23,528 41,840 28,346 11,950 19,229 3,142

The above seems to show that New South Wales residential home approvals has dropped considerably.
