Annual change in turnover in selected manufacturing industries during 5/2012–7/2012 and 5/2011–7/2011, % (TOL 2008)
Turnover went up from the corresponding period of the previous year in nearly all sub-industries. The strongest growths were recorded in mining and quarrying (12.7%), the electronic and electrical industry (4.5%) and the metal industry (4.5%). By contrast, turnover contracted in electricity, gas, steam and air conditioning supply (-9.0%), the forest industry (-3.7%) and the textile, clothing and leather industry (-2.0%).

The index of turnover in industry describes enterprises whose main industry is manufacturing. The calculation of the indices is based on the Tax Administration’s value added tax data which are supplemented with data obtained with Statistics Finland’s sales inquiry. The monthly turnovers of manufacturing enterprises can vary considerably, especially in the metal industries. The variation is mainly due to invoicing practices. The final invoice for major machinery deliveries and projects may be recorded in the sales of one month, even if the delivery had required the work of several months or years.
