Producer prices for services were pushed up particularly by higher prices of software and related services and postal activities under universal service obligation during the year. The increase in the total index was also affected by higher rents of business premises. The rise was held back by, among other things, lower prices of road freight transport, telecommunications and management consulting services.

Compared with the third quarter, producer prices for services remained unchanged, on average.
