The turnover of all other main categories of manufacturing industries also grew year-on-year. Turnover grew strongest in the industry of mining and quarrying, 29.9 per cent.

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.

Changes in the periodic tax return data used in turnover indices

Statistics Finland’s turnover indices prepare for the change in the Tax Administration's value added tax data starting from data for January 2017. More about this under Changes in these statistics.
