Industries of enterprises have been revised in the data released in July

As part of the renewal of the business statistics, uniform industries defined by the Business Register have been taken more extensively into use in the turnover and wage and salary indices starting from this statistical release. In the time series, the industry changes have been taken into consideration from the beginning of 2013. The industry corrections are visible as revised data in some of the published industries. The effects of the changes are taken into consideration in statistics production so that no breaks occur in the time series of the published index series. The interpretation of the statistics also remains unchanged in the renewal.

Revisions to annual changes in industries are presented under Revisions in these statistics.
