Three months' year-on-year change in turnover in main industrial categories (TOL 2008)

The turnover of all main categories of manufacturing industries grew year-on-year. Turnover growth was strongest in the industry of electricity, gas, steam and air conditioning supply, 11.9 per cent. Turnover in water supply, sewerage, waste management and remediation activities increased by 3.6 per cent, and in mining and quarrying by 0.8 per cent compared with the previous year.

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 self-assessed 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.

Industries of enterprises have been revised in the data released in January

Starting from this statistical release the latest industries defined by the Business Register have been taken into use in the turnover and wage and salary indices. The industry corrections are visible as revised data in some of the published industries for the years 2017–2018. The effects of the changes are taken into consideration in statistics production so that no breaks occur in the time series of the published index series. The interpretation of the statistics also remains unchanged in the renewal. Revisions to annual changes in industries are presented under Revisions in these statistics.
