Preliminary data: Turnover in services grew in December

According to Statistics Finland's preliminary data, the working day adjusted turnover in service industries grew by 14.4 per cent in December 2021 compared with December 2020. The development was partly due to the exceptional situation caused by the coronavirus one year earlier. Services are here examined exclusive of trade.

The data for the latest month are preliminary and are released at a delay of around four weeks. The data may become significantly revised in coming months.

The factors caused by the variation in the number of weekdays are taken into account in adjustment for working days. This means taking into consideration the lengths of months, different weekdays and holidays. In addition, seasonal variation is eliminated from seasonally adjusted series, on account of which it makes sense to compare observations of two successive months as well.
