Weight structures of Producer Price Indices revised, base year unchanged

The weight structures of Producer Price Indices have been revised due to structural changes in the electrical and electronics industry. The revised weight structures are used from the January 2013 data. Year 2010 will remain as the base year.

Table 1 shows the weight structures of the 2010=100 indices. The revisions relate to industries "26 Manufacture of computer, electronic and optical products" and "27 Manufacture of electrical equipment". The shares of all industries in the overall index changed.
