Latest Figures: Industrial Output Prices Index, Dec 2013

The Industrial Output Prices Index for December 2013 reached 106,8 units (base 2005=100), recording a decrease of 0,2% compared to November 2013.

For the period January-December 2013, the index showed a decrease of 2,1% compared to the corresponding period of the previous year.

For Manufacturing, the index for December 2013 reached 104,0 units, recording a decrease of 0,3% compared to November 2013.

As from this release, the Industrial Output Prices Index is presented with 2010 as a new base year (instead of 2005). The change of base year every five years is usual practice that aims at better reflecting changes in the structure of the industrial sector that had taken place over the five-year period. This procedure involves an update of the weights used for the calculation of the index (which represent the relative importance of the various economic activities) and changes in the sample of enterprises.

Data for the Industrial Output Prices Index with the new base year (2010=100) have been calculated for all years as from 2010 onwards and are presented in the Archive of Key Figures. In the Archived Key Figures users can also find data with the previous base years: 2005=100 and 2000=100.
