Revisions in database

15.4.2013 Base year of the indices of turnover in industry changes

Starting from data concerning January 2013, the base year 2010=100 will be introduced in the turnover of industry. Data will be released for the first time with the new base year on 15 April 2013.

The indices are re-calculated from the beginning of 2010 in connection with the change of the base year. In this context, the data may have become revised and there the latest changes in the classification data are taken into consideration. The effects are of qualitative nature and are visible as revisions to data in some of the published industries. However, the changes are not significant and have no effect on the interpretation of the time series or the image of economic trends. In the following, database tables published with the old base year (2005=100) will no longer be updated.

15.4.2013 Base year of the statistics on turnover in service industries changes

Starting from data concerning January 2013, the base year 2010=100 will be introduced in the statistics on turnover in service industries. Data will be released for the first time with the new base year on 15 April 2013.

The indices are re-calculated from the beginning of 2010 in connection with the change of the base year. In this context, the data may have become revised and the latest changes in the classification data are taken into consideration. The effects are of qualitative nature and are visible as revisions to data in some of the published industries. However, the changes are not significant and have no effect on the interpretation of the time series or the image of economic trends. In future, database tables published with the old base year (2005=100) will no longer be updated.

At the same time, a change percentage calculated from the original indices will be adopted in the releases instead of working day adjusted indices. Working day adjusted index series will, however, still be published in the database table.

12.4.2013 Base year of the indices of turnover of construction changes

Starting from data concerning January 2013, the base year 2010=100 will be introduced in the turnover of construction. Data will be released for the first time with the new base year on 12 April 2013.

The effects are of qualitative nature and are visible as revisions to data in some of the published industries. However, the changes are not significant and have no effect on the interpretation of the time series or the image of economic trends. In the following, database tables published with the old base year (2005=100) will no longer be updated.

At the same time, the weight structure of the volume index was updated to correspond to the year 2010 and the indices were re-calculated from the data for 2010 onwards.

10.4.2013 The statistics on new orders in manufacturing will utilise the base year 2010=100

The statistics on new orders in manufacturing will utilise the base year 2010=100 starting from the data concerning February 2013. The data will be released for the first time with the new base year on 10 April 2013.

26.3.2013 Changes to Employment Service Statistics

From January 2013, nationaland regional Employment Bulletins will be produced for each local authority rather than for each office, as used to be the case. In the data for the local authorities, information for the region in question will be jointly assembled for all municipalities included within the region. Data for a local authority, will be based, for example, on the jobseeker's municipality of residence and the municipality in which the workplace islocated as notified by the employer. The previously used data, which was office-based, relied on data supplied by the person's and employer's customer service agency. The change in the criterion for regional statistics will have some impact on the breakdown of regional figures.

8.3.2013 Volume Index of Industrial Output 2010=100

22.10.2012 Index of Wage and Salary Earnings

Index of wage and Salary Earnings statistical databases are updated.

15.10.2012 Index of Wage and Salary Earnings

The new base year for the Index of Wage and Salary Earnings is 2010. Due to revision statistical databases are not ready when third quarter 2012 will be published. Index of wage and Salary Earnings statistical databases will be updated later on week 42.

8.10.2012 Changes in the compilation methods of the Trend Indicator of Output

A new information system was introduced in the compilation of the Trend Indicator of Output, which enables utilisation of improved calculation methods from before. Data based on the new compilation methods will be released on 9 October 2012.

The Trend Indicator of Output is compiled with the so-called indirect calculation method. Data are formed from source data indicators and the levels of national accounts by means of mathematical and statistical calculation methods. The indirect calculation method is used, because sufficiently comprehensive source data by quarter are not available on the whole national economy. In the new information system the calculation methods of the Trend Indicator of Output are fully congruent with quarterly national accounts.

The changes cause small revisions to the time series of the Trend Indicator of Output.

1.10.2012 Data of the General government deficit and debt have been corrected

In the table General government deficit and debt 1975-2011* deficit data has been revised for Social security funds and Total (General government) for years 1995-2007. For those sectors data has been revised both in in Million EUR and in Percentage of GDP

Producer price indices have been revised and their base years changed to 2010. In connection with the revision, the weight structures of the statistics have been brought in line with the values of production, imports and exports for the year 2010. In addition, the commodity and enterprise samples have been updated.

All publishable point figures calculated with the new base year are available in Statistics Finland's databases. Calculation and publishing of data with base years 1949=100 and 2005=100 will continue.

Basic price index for domestic supply, including taxes has replaced the Wholesale price index

Basic price index for domestic supply, including taxes has replaced the Wholesale price index in base year 2010=100 statistics. The Basic price index for domestic supply, including taxes corresponds with the previous Wholesale price index except that it now also extends to construction, activity category F. The desire in this revision to base year 2010=100 was to change the name "Wholesale price index" to a more descriptive name for these statistics. The scope of description of the statistics is the same as in the Basic price index for domestic supply, but inclusive of commodity and value added taxes. The point figures of the Wholesale price indices calculated with the old base years will in future be chained by utilising the Basic price index for domestic supply, including taxes.

Produce price indices will be released on the 24th of the month

The date on which Producer price indices are released was changed in connection with this periodic revision. From now on, the statistics will be released on the 24th day of the month or on the first weekday following it. The data for November will be released on the last weekday preceding 24 December.

31.1.2012 Statistics on capital stock to be combined with National Accounts

Sector accounts in preliminary annual national accounts

Statistics Finland will release preliminary annual national accounts data for 2011 on 2 March 2012. In this release sector accounts data for 2011 are based on quarterly national accounts apart from general government. In future, the first preliminary data on sector accounts will be mainly based on quarterly statistics. Publishing of sector accounts by quarter will start in autumn 2012.

The sector accounts for the preliminary annual data will be published in Statistics Finland's databases with a slightly less detailed classification of transactions than before, because the classification of transactions in the quarterly sector accounts is less detailed than in the annual sector accounts. The sector accounts for 2011 with full content will be published for the first time on 12 July 2012.

The breakdown by sector is the same in the data published on 2 March 2012 except for sector S12 Financial and insurance corporations, whose subdivision will be published on 12 July 2012.

The following list includes the most important transactions on which data for 2011 will not be released in the database on 2 March 2012 but only on 12 July 2012.

 

25.8.2011 In data bases of annual national accounts and capital stock following tables have been corrected:

Tables: Key indicators of household sector 1975-2010 and Additional information 1975-2010, indebtedness rate for 2008 and 2009 has been corrected.

Table: Gross fixed capital formation 1975-2010, figures of transaction P511 gross formation of tangible fixed assets has been corrected.

2.8.2011 The Quarterly National Accounts

The Quarterly National Accounts table 'Employment quarterly 1990Q1-' updated on 14 July 2011 has been removed due to errors detected in the table. The original employment and labour input series were correct in the table, but there were errors in seasonally, trend and working day adjusted series. A corrected table will be added in week 32.

28.6.2011 Data of the Volume Index of Industrial Output for January to April 2011 have been corrected

An error has been detected in the calculation of the Volume Index of Industrial Output, which has an effect on the previously published volume index figures for January to April 2011. The erroneous figures for the early part of the year have now been corrected to the statistical releases and databases and to the data files delivered to customers.

The error has no effect on the image of economic trends given by other statistics, such as the Quarterly National Accounts or the Trend Indicator of Output.

The error is caused by that the revision in the weight structure at the turn of the year has not become updated to the calculation system. For that reason, enterprises' weights by size category inside three-digit industries have remained erroneous in the calculation of the index.

The table below contains the corrected and previously published erroneous data of the most important industries.

General information about the TOL 2008 classification can be found in the classifications section of Statistics Finland's website.

Due to the renewal of the information system of national accounts, revisions will be made to the calculation systems and time series of the accounts. Errors detected in the time series will also corrected in the same context. The effects of the revisions on the euro-denominated time series will be minor. The data describing gross domestic product and the financial position of sectors will not essentially change.

After the adoption of the revised industrial classification, annual national accounts data will be published in databases at the accuracy 90 industries and quarterly accounts data at the accuracy of 11 industries. Data on value added will be published in quarterly accounts at the accuracy of 20 industries. The number of database tables will decrease due to the merging of tables on individual economic transactions. The data contents of the tables will also become revised in other respects.

10.12.2009 Volume index of industrial output

Statistics Finland has calculated final indices for the years 2007 and 2008.

The final annual volume index is calculated from the regional and industrial statistics on manufacturing calculated from structural statistics on manufacturing. More detailed description of the statistics is available at http://tilastokeskus.fi/meta/til/atoi_en.html. Changes in gross value at the most detailed classification level have been divided by change in the producer price index of each industry concerned. The preliminary annual change of the monthly index has been revised with the obtained coefficient.
