Revisions

When the orders index and the turnover index for a new month are published, the indices for previous months are also revised. The material is normally revised for between two to four months retroactively, depending on which month of the quarter is the reference month. The whole previous quarter is revised when publishing the first and second months of a quarter. Calendar adjusted figures, seasonally adjusted figures and trend figures are revised from January 2000 onwards.
