Producer price indices have been revised and their base years have been changed to 2005. The weight structures of the producer price indices have been revised, the enterprise and commodity samples have been updated and the volume of price data has been increased considerably. The revised standard industrial classification, TOL 2008, was also introduced in connection with the periodic review.
The introduction of the revised industrial classification means i.a. at the main industry level that fishing has been combined with agriculture and forestry into industry A, electricity and gas supply have been combined with steam and air conditioning supply into industry D and water supply has been combined with sewerage, waste management and remediation into industry E. More detailed information about TOL 2008, including its contents and classification principles, is available under Classifications on Statistics Finland Internet pages at http://tilastokeskus.fi/meta/luokitukset/index_en.html
All publishable point figures according to the revised standard industrial classification and the base year are available in Statistics Finland's StatFin database. For the time being, producer price indices according to the old industrial classification, TOL 2002, and with base year 2000=100 will also be published in the StatFin database. However, the division to domestic and imported goods for the basic price index for domestic supply and the wholesale price index with base year 2000=100, and the division to domestic and exported goods for the producer price index for manufacturing, will no longer be available.
