A revised industrial classification, TOL 2008, will be introduced in Finnish statistics in 2009. General information about the transition is given on the TOL 2008 pages of the Statistics section of Statistics Finland's website. The Classifications pages of the Metadata section of the website contain more detailed information about TOL 2008, such as its contents and classification principles.
The revised classification will be introduced in March 2009 in the publication on new orders in manufacturing describing January 2009. The data of the statistics in the database services and compilation publications will also be given according to TOL 2008, and publishing of data by TOL 2002 will be discontinued. The previously published data according to TOL2002 will remain available on the home page of the statistics and in the database services.
The levels of TOL 2008 by which data on new orders in manufacturing will be published are described on the home page of the statistics. The new publication levels have been kept as similar to the series according to TOL 2002 as possible.
The effects of the new industrial classification on manufacturing industries have been discussed also in the Fokus section of the industry review 2/2008 (In Finnish only).
