New index series are published in connection with the Producer Price Index for Services

From the third quarter of 2014 onwards, new index series that depict the price development of services offered to all end users will be published in connection with the Producer Price Index for Services. New BtoAll index series are published for the following industries:

  • H 50 Water transport
  • H 53 Post and courier activities
  • J 61 Telecommunications

The base year of the indices is 2010=100 and time series on the indices will be published starting from the beginning of 2010. The weights used to calculate indices are available at the document Weight structure of the Producer Price Indices for Services 2010=100, BtoAll series.

The publication of BtoAll indices is part of a larger revision of the Producer Price Index for Services, in connection with which the description of the index will be expanded. In addition to the price development of the Business to Business (BtoB) services and services enterprises produce for the public sector currently included in the index, in future it will also describe the price development of Business to Consumers (BtoC) and Business to All (BtoAll) services. In connection with the next base year revision (2015=100) of the Producer Price Index for Services, BtoAll series will also be added to other industries.

The BtoAll indices do not affect the current total index or the industry-specific indices of the Producer Price Index for Services. They are individual indices that describe certain industries and no total index is published on them yet.
