Base year of the indices of turnover of construction changes

Starting from data concerning January 2013, the base year 2010=100 will be introduced in the turnover of construction. Data will be released for the first time with the new base year on 12 April 2013.

The indices are re-calculated from the beginning of 2010 in connection with the change of the base year. In this context, the data may have become revised and there the latest changes in the classification data are taken into consideration. The effects are of qualitative nature and are visible as revisions to data in some of the published industries. However, the changes are not significant and have no effect on the interpretation of the time series or the image of economic trends. In the following, database tables published with the old base year (2005=100) will no longer be updated.

At the same time, the weight structure of the volume index was updated to correspond to the year 2010 and the indices were re-calculated from the data for 2010 onwards.
