Producer Price Index for Services revised

The Producer Price Index for Services is revised and its base year will be changed to 2015. In connection with the revision, the weight structures of the statistics are updated to correspond with the values of output for 2015. In addition, the service group and enterprise samples are updated. In future, the classification used in the releases will be the CPA product classification instead of the previously used Standard Industrial Classification. Point figures calculated with the new base year become available in Statistics Finland's StatFin database on 24 April 2018. Indices with base years 2010=100 and 2005=100 will be calculated forward by chaining with the index with the latest base year, i.e. they will develop in line with the index with the base year 2015=100.
