Turnover in industry grew by 10.4 per cent in June

According to Statistics Finland, working day adjusted turnover in industry (TOL BCD) increased in June by 10.4 per cent year-on-year. Turnover grew in nearly all main industries. The development was partly due to the exceptional situation caused by the coronavirus one year earlier. Of the main industries, turnover grew most in the forest industry, by 30.8 per cent from one year earlier. Seasonally adjusted turnover in industry (TOL BCD) grew in June by 0.4 per cent compared to May.

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 self-assessed 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.

The factors caused by the variation in the number of weekdays are taken into account in adjustment for working days. This means taking into consideration the lengths of months, different weekdays and holidays. In addition, seasonal variation is eliminated from seasonally adjusted series, on account of which it makes sense to compare observations of two successive months as well.

The data for the latest month are preliminary and are released at a delay of around six weeks. The data may become significantly revised particularly on more detailed industry levels in coming months. Revisions to the data may be particularly significant on the more accurate industry levels of export turnover and domestic turnover.
