Foreign trade – exports and imports of goods
From 2015 onwards a new threshold applies for companies being obliged to report data to Intrastat (intra-EU trade). The threshold remains unchanged for dispatches (SEK 4.5 million) but is raised for arrivals from SEK 4.5 million to SEK 9.0 million. This leads to more companies falling below the arrival threshold and fewer companies being obliged to report information on intra-EU arrivals to Statistics Sweden. A higher proportion of the data therefore needs to be estimated and the uncertainty of the detailed data increases. The data published for 2015 will be based on less reported information than previous years and the tables showing data adjusted for non-response will rely more on estimates than data from previous years.
