Turnover went up from the corresponding period of the previous year in nearly all sub-industries. The largest growths were seen in mining and quarrying (31.6%), in the forest industry (21.2%) and in water supply, sewerage, waste management and remediation activities (20.4%). In the food industry turnover was unchanged from the previous year (-0.1%).

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.
