1Industrial Turnover Index characterises monthly changes in demand for industrial goods and services on the market. It is calculated as a non-deflated (at current prices,not excluding the effect of prices) weighted index, using industrial turnover in breakdown in domestic market and exports as the weights. Unlike industrial goods that also include unfinished goods and goods in stock, turnover only includes the goods sold and industrial services provided.
