The volume index of industrial output is published monthly at a lag of approximately 40 days from the statistical reference period, that is, on the 10th day of each month or on the weekday preceding it at 9 am. Monthly data may become revised until the final annual volume index has been calculated.

The release times can be found in the release calendar on the statistics home page.

The data are used by the Statistical Office of the European Communities (Eurostat), the European Central Bank (ECB), international organisations (OECD, UN) and Finland's public administration. The users also include the business world and research institutes.
