Revisions to data on rents of office and business premises

The data on rents of office and business premises (6820) have been supplemented since the 4th quarter of 2008, and this influences the overall point figure of the producer price index for services starting from the 4th quarter of 2008. The revision also influences the point figures for the activities of Rents of office premises (6820A), Rents of office and business premises (6820) and Real estate activities (68 and L) starting from the same reference period.

The revision of the point figures also affects the percentages describing quarterly and yearly changes. The revised and the unrevised point figures, quarterly changes and yearly changes are reported in the tables below by industry.
