Producer price indices have been revised

Producer price indices have been revised and their base years changed to 2010. In connection with the revision, the weight structures of the statistics have been brought in line with the values of production, imports and exports for the year 2010. In addition, the commodity and enterprise samples have been updated.

All publishable point figures calculated with the new base year are available in Statistics Finland's StatFin database. Calculation and publishing of data with base years 1949=100 and 2005=100 will continue.

Basic price index for domestic supply, including taxes has replaced the Wholesale price index

Basic price index for domestic supply, including taxes has replaced the Wholesale price index in base year 2010=100 statistics. The Basic price index for domestic supply, including taxes corresponds with the previous Wholesale price index except that it now also extends to construction, activity category F. The desire in this revision to base year 2010=100 was to change the name "Wholesale price index" to a more descriptive name for these statistics. The scope of description of the statistics is the same as in the Basic price index for domestic supply, but inclusive of commodity and value added taxes. The point figures of the Wholesale price indices calculated with the old base years will in future be chained by utilising the Basic price index for domestic supply, including taxes.

Produce price indices will be released on the 24th of the month

The date on which Producer price indices are released was changed in connection with this periodic revision. From now on, the statistics will be released on the 24th day of the month or on the first weekday following it. The data for November will be released on the last weekday preceding 24 December.
