8 Sep 2017 Login problem in the new PX-Web version

There have been login problems in the new PX-Web version. We apologise for the situation and will amend it as soon as possible. The data in the database can still be accessed through the old version at: http://pxweb2.stat.fi/database/tilastokatsaus/databasetree_en.asp

1 Sep 2017 Web version of the Statistical Review is updated to a new PX-Web version

Web version of the Statistical Review is available at a new address:

https://pxhopea2.stat.fi/PXWeb/pxweb/en/Tilastokatsaus

And naturally also through Statistics Finland’s database page: http://tilastokeskus.fi/tup/tilastotietokannat/index_en.html

The direct links to the tables in the old server don´t work any more and they need to be changed to a new server. The changes that take place in the service require no other actions from the users. The basic use of the service remains almost unchanged even though the user interface changes slightly.

The change is based on a version updated in the PX-Web server application. With the new version the user can, for example, save selected data in newer file formats than before (e.g. Excel xlsx and json-stat). Development work continues and in future users will, for example, be able to save and reuse their searches. We will provide more information about this and other new functionalities later this year.

All feedback and development ideas are much appreciated.

More information concerning technical changes is available from Hans Baumgartner (hans.baumgartner@stat.fi) and on issues concerning content from Sari Vahala (sari.vahala@stat.fi).

Data for a local authority, will be based, for example, on the jobseeker's municipality of residence and the municipality in which the workplace islocated as notified by the employer. The previously used data, which was office-based, relied on data supplied by the person's and employer's customer service agency. The change in the criterion for regional statistics will have some impact on the breakdown of regional figures.

28.6.2011 Data of the Volume Index of Industrial Output for January to April 2011 have been corrected

An error has been detected in the calculation of the Volume Index of Industrial Output, which has an effect on the previously published volume index figures for January to April 2011. The erroneous figures for the early part of the year have now been corrected to the statistical releases and databases and to the data files delivered to customers.

The error has no effect on the image of economic trends given by other statistics, such as the Quarterly National Accounts or the Trend Indicator of Output.

The error is caused by that the revision in the weight structure at the turn of the year has not become updated to the calculation system. For that reason, enterprises' weights by size category inside three-digit industries have remained erroneous in the calculation of the index.

The table below contains the corrected and previously published erroneous data of the most important industries.

Corrected data of the most important industries for January to April 2011

More detailed description of the statistics is available at http://tilastokeskus.fi/meta/til/atoi_en.html.
