Annual change in turnover in selected manufacturing industries during 3/2011–5/2011 and 3/2010–5/2010, % (TOL 2008)
Turnover went up from the corresponding period of the previous year in all sub-industries. The growth was strongest in the chemical industry (37.4%), in mining and quarrying (23.4%) and in the textile, clothing and leather industry (15.5%). The growth of turnover was slowest in the electrical and electronic industry (5.9%) and in the food industry (9.1%).

The index of turnover in industry describes enterprises whose main industry is manufacturing. The calculation of the indices is based on the Tax Administration’s value added tax data which are supplemented with data obtained with Statistics Finland’s sales inquiry. The monthly turnovers of manufacturing enterprises can vary considerably, especially in the metal industries. The variation is mainly due to invoicing practices. The final invoice for major machinery deliveries and projects may be recorded in the sales of one month, even if the delivery had required the work of several months or years.
