Revised data for June 2007 will be published at 9 am on 31 August 2007 in connection with the industrial output data for July 2007. Because of the method used, seasonally adjusted figures for previous months may change even if the original figures do not become revised. The seasonally adjusted figures will also be adjusted for working days. The data for June may also become revised because, owing to summer holidays, more establishments than usual are missing.
In connection with the publication for June, the heading-specific weight structure of the establishments was also updated. From now on, the values for 2006 will be used as heading-specific value weights. For this reason the point figures and change percentages for the early part of the year may have changed.
