Changes in this publication

Some methodological changes have been introduced in connection with publication of the Index of Service Production for April 2015. These changes are intended to improve the quality of the statistics as well as to coordinate the monthly and quarterly economic statistics. These statistics include the Industrial Production Index, Orders and Turnover in Industry, Industrial Inventories and Industrial Capacity Utilisation together with the Index of Service Production, the Retail Trade Index, the Restaurant Index and Inventories in Trade and Services.

The time series have been calculated back to 2000 in order to decrease possible level shifts and breaks in the time series that have resulted in revisions in some historical series. The annual sample change was carried out in connection with the April publication.

Revisions

When the Index of Service Production for a new month is published, the indices for previous months are also revised. The material is normally revised between two to four months retroactively, depending on which month in 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.

Next publishing will be

The next statistical news release in this series is scheduled for publication on 2017-02-03  at  09:30.
