The base year for the indices of owner-occupied housing prices has been changed to 2015=100.

Index of turnover of construction: Changes in the Tax Administration's self-assessed tax data do not have an effect on the data of turnover indices for January 2017

Starting from data concerning January 2017, turnover indices started to use the Tax Administration's self-assessed tax data (previously periodic tax return data).

In addition, the application area of calendar quarter reporting has been extended by raising the upper limit from the present EUR 50,000 to EUR 100,000. Correspondingly, the upper limit entitling to calendar year reporting applied in value added taxation is raised from the present EUR 25,000 to EUR 30,000. The change in enterprises' reporting of periodic tax return data may affect the accruals of reported value added tax data.

Balance of payments and international investment position: Recording of factoryless goods production in international trade changes

The recording of so-called factoryless goods production in international trade will change in the National Accounts and Balance of Payments starting from the statistical reference year 2014. A factoryless goods producer refers to an enterprise that no longer has own factories in its home country, but whose planning, research and product development, administration and marketing are located in Finland.

Previously, the margin from factoryless goods production or net sales from abroad to abroad was Finnish service exports. Starting from the statistical reference year 2014, the margin in question is recorded as Finnish goods exports. In supply and use tables, the recording by product changes from a service product to a good in accordance with the sold end product.

Trend Indicator of Output: Development of the Trend Indicator of Output

The former Monthly Indicator of Total Output has been revised and is published under the new name of Trend Indicator of Output. The development work was done during 2008 alongside the calculation of the indicator without breaks in publications. The development project has now ended but some changes can still be expected in 2009. So far the calculation of the indicator has been harmonised with the calculation methods of the quarterly accounts output. The calculation of industry-specific data is now primarily based on value data deflated with previous year's average prices. This produces volume figures at previous year's prices, in which the previous year is always the base year. Volume changes at previous year's prices are used to chain a continuous volume series at reference year 2000 prices with the so-called annual overlap method. This series is published as the Trend Indicator of Output. This method corresponds to the deflation and chaining method applied to quarterly accounts output.

Trend Indicator of Output: Developing the Trend Indicator of Output

Starting from the February release, the former Monthly Indicator of Total Output has been published as the Trend Indicator of Output. The development work is still ongoing, and the project continues until the end of 2008. So far the calculation of the indicator has been harmonised with the calculation methods of the quarterly accounts output. The calculation of industry-specific data is now primarily based on value data deflated with previous year's average prices. This produces volume figures at previous year's prices, in which the previous year is always the base year. Volume changes at previous year's prices are used to chain a continuous volume series at reference year 2000 prices with the so-called annual overlap method. This series is published as the Trend Indicator of Output. This method corresponds to the deflation and chaining method applied to quarterly accounts output.

Input-output: Differences in values of imports between national accounts and input-output tables

The value of imports in the supply and use and input-output tables 2000-2005 is smaller than the revised value of imports in national accounts data published in January 2008. Because of the time-consuming process involved in balancing the supply and use tables, no attempt to rebalance the supply and use sides has been made at this stage. Values of imports in supply and use tables and input-output tables will be corrected together with other national accounts revisions. New tables will be published in 2009. Till then the total value of imports in the tables will diverge from the revised value of imports as shown in the table.

Volume index of industrial output: Information about revisions of data for 2008 to the Volume Index of Industrial Output

Statistics Finland is in the process of revising its monthly volume index of industrial output so that it will describe output at constant prices. Exploitation of data on the value of industrial activity, deflated with suitable price indices, will be gradually increased in the calculation of the index. Some of the data on value will not become available to Statistics Finland within the time lag of approximately 30 days of the monthly releasing schedule of the index. Because of this there will be more frequent revisions to the data within a year than in the past.
