Turnover in service industries grew by 4 per cent in March to May from the corresponding time period of the year before. One year previously turnover in service industries grew by 8.3 per cent. Throughout the early part of the year, the growth of turnover in service industries has been slower than in the previous year. Services are here examined exclusive of trade and the data have been adjusted for working days by eliminating the effects of calendar variations from them.
Three months' year-on-year change in turnover in services (TOL 2008)
Turnover in service industries was most favourable in real estate activities, where turnover increased by good seven per cent from one year back. Growth of over five per cent was also attained in professional, scientific and technical activities, in administrative and support service activities, and in accommodation and food service activities. The development of turnover was weakest in other service activities and in arts, entertainment and recreation activities.
