The turnover estimate of large enterprises describes the development of turnover in the most important enterprises in their industries at a lag of around one month from the end of the statistical reference month. The data used for calculating the preliminary data comprise of around 2,000 enterprises in manufacturing, construction, trade and other service industries included in the sales inquiry. Turnover does not include value added tax and as a rule, corresponds to turnover data according to the Accounting Act. For the construction enterprises included in the statistics, turnover comprises domestic sales. The calculation is based on estimation of change. The calculation includes data on the enterprises for which comparable data on turnover are available for both the examined month and the corresponding month of the previous year. The obtained sums are used to calculate annual changes. The annual changes thus obtained are used to raise the turnover index of the corresponding month of the previous year. Indices of turnover are published comprehensively on the industries of trade, other services, manufacturing and construction as well. We also produce to order special compilations of data on the turnover and export turnover of other industries, enterprise groups and different areas.
