Revised industrial classification TOL 2008 to be introduced in producer price indices in February 2009

A revised industrial classification, TOL 2008, will be introduced in Finnish statistics in 2009. General information about the transition is given on the TOL 2008 pages of the Statistics section of our website. The Classifications pages of the Metadata section of the website contain more detailed information about TOL 2008, such as its contents and classification principles.

The revised classification will be introduced in February 2009 in producer prices indices describing January 2009. Producer price indices will continue to be published according to the old TOL 2002 classification on the home pages of the indices for twelve months after the introduction of the revised classification. The base year of the producer price indices will be changed in connection with the transition to the new classification, with 2005 as the new base year.

Retrospective data starting from 2005 will be published according to TOL 2008 on the industries covered by the producer price indices.

Changes caused by introduction of TOL 2008 to the main categories compiled from Producer Price Indices by index are described on the home page of the statistics
