Output in the metal industry was 6.5 per cent up on twelve months back. In the food industry, output grew by 5.7 per cent in June. Output in the forest industry fell by 1.6 per cent. The lowest growth of 11.7 per cent was recorded in production of electricity.

Revised data for June 2016 will be published at 9 am on 9 September 2016 in connection with the release of industrial output data for July 2016. 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.
