The change in total revenue and expenditure from the previous quarter is calculated from seasonally adjusted time series. Seasonally adjusted time series always become revised against new observations irrespective of whether the original time series becomes revised or not. Further information on the seasonal adjustment method: http://www.tilastokeskus.fi/til/tramo_seats_en.html . As the time series of annual accounts become revised, the time series of this set of statistics will also be revised. These data are based on the information on economic development available by 27 September 2010. The data will next be revised at the end of December 2010.
