  1. Hi Gerald,

    Thank you for your comment.

    Confidence is calculated based on 2 components:
    1. Number of sales (current and historical) for the area
    2. Past error rate for the area

    In this instance, although the number of sales is significant to establish the overall council area trend with high confidence, the sales are distributed disproportionally between the suburbs therefore resulting in only on high confidence suburb – Gatton.

    The rest of the suburbs have varying trends with medium/low confidence, therefore allowing for a 10% and 15% error in the data respectively.

    We are working on a change that will result in reduced error rate for suburb data and produce better inference of council area trends at the suburb level. To simplify, suburbs that are currently tagged as medium confidence are likely to be classified as ‘high confidence’ whereas low confidence suburbs will become ‘medium confidence’.

    For now we recommend to rely on the council area capital growth projections to gauge the general trend and always drill down to suburb level for actual percent change figures, focusing on high and medium confidence locations.
