Decrease in manufacturing turnover

The turnover in Norwegian manufacturing decreased by 4.0 per cent from November 2008 to January 2009 compared to the pervious three-month period, according to seasonally adjusted figures.

The turnover dropped by 1.8 per cent in the domestic market and 6.7 per cent in the export market. The decrease in total turnover is a result of both a decline in prices for some industries (see producer price index ) and reduced volume in the period (see the index of production ).

Index of turnover for manufacturing January 2000-January 2009, 2005=100

Important announcement: New classification being implemented shortly

As from January 2009, a new version of Eurostat’s industry classification, NACE, will be in use. The statistics on turnover are affected by the change of nomenclature from the publication of January 2009 results. The most important change for statistics on turnover is that publishing and recycling have been moved from manufacturing. In addition, repairs and installations of industrial machinery are now classified as a separate industry. Click here to read more about the implications for users, calculation and dissemination.

New base year

The base year used in the calculation for the statistics on turnover has been changed to 2005=100.

New method for estimating population level

The sample units cover about 70 per cent of the total turnover. In addition, turnover from the yearly Manufacturing statistics is used to estimate turnover for the establishments not covered in the sample. A stratified ratio estimator is used for this purpose.
