Revised data for July 2021 will be published at 8 am on 8 October 2021 in connection with the release of industrial output data for August 2021. The revision is influenced by the estimation used in the latest release, which is based on the Tax Administration's data on self-assessed taxes 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 are also adjusted for working days.
