Revised data for July 2012 will be published at 9 am on 10 October 2012 in connection with the release of industrial output data for August 2012. The revision is influenced by the estimation used in the latest release which concerns the periodic tax return data used for enterprises with fewer than 50 employees. Because of the method used, seasonally adjusted figures for previous months may change even if the original figures do not become revised. The seasonally adjusted figures will also be adjusted for working days.
