Revised data for June 2020 will be published at 8 am on 10 September 2020 in connection with the release of industrial output data for July 2020. The revision is influenced by the estimation used in the latest release, which is based on the Tax Administration's data on self-assessed taxes used for enterprises with fewer than 50 employees. Because of the method used, seasonally adjusted figures for previous months may change even if the original figures do not become revised. The seasonally adjusted figures are also adjusted for working days.
