Information about the change of the base year for new orders in manufacturing

The new base year for the index of new orders in manufacturing is 2010. The index of new orders in manufacturing has been re-calculated from the basic data starting from 2010, whereby the point figures and change percentages for the years 2011, 2012 and January 2013 change. The years 2005 to 2010 were changed to correspond to the base year 2010=100.

In connection with updating the base year, the division into domestic and exports in calculating the index for new orders in manufacturing is abolished. The calculation is made directly at a total level without division into domestic and export orders. In calculating the 2010=100 indices, the sum by industry calculation is performed at the 2-digit level of the classification of industries. Indices for aggregated levels of the classification are obtained by weighting the indices at the 2-digit level.

The weights of the 2005=100 index are based on the data for 2005 and the weights of the 2010=100 index on the data for 2010.
