Industrial output went up in a few main industries in June. Output rose most, by 10 per cent, in electricity production. In the chemical industry, output grew by 4.6 per cent. Output also grew slightly in the forest industry in June. Mining and quarrying declined most in June, by nearly 35 per cent. This was mostly due to the rainy June, which hampered the production of peat.

Revised data for June 2015 will be published at 9 am on 10 September 2015 in connection with the release of industrial output data for July 2015. The revision is influenced by the estimation used in the latest release, which concerns the periodic tax return data used for enterprises with fewer than 50 employees. 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.
