Output of the national economy grew in January 2015

Seasonally adjusted output grew by 1.5 per cent in January from the month before. Adjusted for working days, output was 0.7 per cent higher than in January 2014. The working day correction affected the growth figures of January considerably as, according to the original series, output of the national economy decreased by 1.4 per cent from one year ago in January. This was largely because January 2015 had one working day less than January 2014.According to revised data, working-day adjusted output decreased in December by 1.1 per cent (previously -1.2 per cent) from December 2013.

The latest observations of the series adjusted for seasonal and random variation (seasonally adjusted and trend series) become revised with new observations in seasonal adjustment methods. Revisions especially at turning points of economic trends may be significant, which should be taken into consideration when using seasonally adjusted and trend data.
