This pilot study is the first in a series of attempts by Statistics Netherlands to find alternative indicators to deflate the production value of branches of the service industry in cases where deflation by standard methods is problematic. Banking has been singled out since on the one hand it has a large value added while on the other hand the specific character of a large share of its production value (FISIM) rules out the standard deflation procedure. Consequently, less conventional methods are necessary here.
