The gross value of production measures the actual production output of an establishment. Operating activities include all production output, also production for own use and production for the enterprise’s other establishments. Gross value excludes transfer gains from fixed assets, which are not seen as a production item but as windfall profit. Additionally, the purchases of goods for resale are deducted from the profits of operating activities, so that operating activities only include the margin created by sales of goods for resale.

The value added measures the total value added produced by the various factors of production in an establishment’s actual operating activities. The value added is calculated by deducting the costs of operating activities from the income from the activities. Profits include also deliveries from an establishment to the enterprise's other establishments, and costs include also purchases from the enterprise’s other establishments. According to the definition, costs exclude the costs related to the establishment's personnel.

Regional statistics on entrepreneurial activity include data about the establishments of enterprises operating in Finland by industry, area and size category. The statistical data are released twice a year in September and December. The preliminary statistics that are published in the autumn have a less extensive content and focus on manufacturing industries, that include TOL B Mining and quarrying, TOL C Manufacturing, TOL D Electricity, gas and water supply, TOL E Water supply; sewerage, waste management and remediation activities.
