Three months' year-on-year change in turnover in manufacturing (C) sub-industries (TOL 2008)
Turnover went up from the corresponding period of the previous year in nearly all manufacturing (C) sub-industries . Turnover increased most in the chemical industry, by 5.7 per cent, in the forest industry, by 5.6 per cent, and in the textile, clothing and leather industry, by 5.3 per cent. Only the food industry generated slightly less turnover than in the year before, -1.2 per cent.
Three months' year-on-year change in turnover in main industrial categories (TOL 2008)
The turnover of all other main categories of manufacturing industries also grew year-on-year. Turnover growth was biggest in mining and quarrying, 21.6 per cent. Turnover grew by 2.7 per cent from the previous year in both electricity, gas, steam and air conditioning supply and in water supply, sewerage, waste management and remediation activities.
The index of turnover in industry describes enterprises whose main industry is manufacturing. The calculation of the indices is based on the Tax Administration’s value added tax data which are supplemented with data obtained with Statistics Finland’s sales inquiry. The monthly turnovers of manufacturing enterprises can vary considerably, especially in the metal industries. The variation is mainly due to invoicing practices. The final invoice for major machinery deliveries and projects may be recorded in the sales of one month, even if the delivery had required the work of several months or years.
