Latest Figures: Industrial Output Prices Index, Mar 2018

The Industrial Output Prices Index for March 2018 reached 97,4 units (base 2015=100), recording a decrease of 0,2% compared to February 2018.

For the period January-March 2018, the index showed a decrease of 0,9% compared to the corresponding period of the previous year.

For Manufacturing the index for March 2018 reached 99,2 units, recording an increase of 0,3% compared to February 2018.

Note that, as from this release, the Industrial Output Prices Index is presented with 2015 as a new base year (instead of 2010). 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 sales value of the industrial products) and changes in the sample of enterprises.

Data for the Industrial Output Prices Index with the new base year (2015=100) have been calculated for all years as from 2015 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: 2010=100, 2005=100 and 2000=100.
