Table Industrial production indices
Technical note The national indices in this table are shown for the categories “Mining”, “Manufacturing”, “Electricity, gas and steam” and “Water; waste management”, corresponding to sections B, C, D and E of ISIC Rev.4. Major deviations from ISIC in the scope of the indices for the above categories are indicated in the titles or by footnotes to the table.

The indices for the category “General” are the combination of the components shown and share all deviations from ISIC footnoted for the component series. Therefore, ideally, this would cover the complete scope of industrial statistics, namely ISIC Rev.4 sections B, C, D and E. For the purpose of presentation, the national indices have been rebased to 2005 = 100, where necessary.

Unless otherwise stated, industry categories are based on ISIC Rev.4 and the monthly and quarterly indices are not adjusted for differences in the number of working days or for seasonal variation.
