Turnover of service industries included in the renewal of business statistics

Statistics Finland has renewed the production of business statistics. The review concerns more than ten sets of statistics. The renewal harmonises the production of business statistics. A uniform business production system has been adopted in the turnover of service industries in May 2014.

The renewal improves the quality of indices of turnover by increasing the convergence between business statistics. The main changes are related to harmonising the industry and enterprise classifications, as well as to more extensive presentation of enterprise reorganisations.

In connection with the renewal, the turnover of service industries has been recalculated from the beginning of 2013, which is 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.
