Methodological and time series reform of national accounts completed

The calculation methods of national accounts and the time series data of annual national accounts for the years 1975-2004 have been changed. In particular, changes have occurred in the calculation methods of the volume development of gross domestic product and its sub-components. At the same time, other revisions were made to time series. The changes are mainly due to the harmonisation work of national accounts carried out in the EU. Because of the changes the national accounts data for 2005 released earlier on 1 March 2006 are not in all respects comparable with the data published now.
