Seasonally adjusted output fell by 0.3 per cent in April from the month before. Adjusted for working days, output went up by 0.2 per cent from the level of the previous year’s corresponding month. According to revised data, working-day adjusted output grew in March by 1.0 per cent (previously 2.4 per cent) from March 2011. The revision is caused by the benchmarking of the data to quarterly accounts.

The latest observations of the series adjusted for seasonal and random variation (seasonally adjusted and trend series) become revised with new observations in seasonal adjustment methods. Revisions especially at turning points of economic trends may be significant, which should be taken into consideration when using seasonally adjusted and trend data.
