Manufacturing output and turnover
Data on manufacturing output and turnover are used to estimate manufacturing output and turnover in corresponding quarter.
Concepts and definitions
Income from sale of goods and provision of services, from which trade discounts, as well as value added tax and other taxes directly related to sales are deducted.
Industrial production output
Volume of goods produced and industrial services provided during the reference period at current prices.
Industrial production output is calculated by summing industrial turnover (income from sale of produced goods and provision of industrial services, excluding value added and excise tax) with stock of finished goods and changes in unfinished goods (+ or –) at the end of reference period, compared to the beginning of reference period, estimated according to the expenditure on production process and value of equipment produced by the enterprise labour force for own needs and capital repairs of the equipment.
Data collection and statistical processing
Survey method and data source
Each month starting until the 25th date the information on industrial production output and turnover during the reference period at current prices is collected within according to classes of NACE Rev. 2. Data on industrial turnover are obtained with the help of enterprise survey, building a threshold sample. Data are collected from the CSB monthly statistical report form 1-r "Survey of industrial activity".
Manufacturing output (volume) and turnover statistics is acquired by surveying economically active enterprises the main or secondary activity whereof covers industry (in line with the Sections B – Mining and Quarrying, C – Manufacturing, and D – Electricity, gas, steam and air conditioning supply, except for Group 35.3 – Steam and air conditioning supply, of the Statistical Classification of Economic Activities in the European Community (NACE Rev. 2)) and which a year before in industrial production employed 20 or more persons.
The sample additionally includes enterprises employing fewer than 20 people, to ensure that the data compiled on Divisions of NACE Rev. 2 (data at 2-digit level) cover at least 80 % of business structural statistics turnover in 2018.
The population of enterprises surveyed during the reference year may be revised by supplementing it with new economically active enterprises (in line with the mentioned criteria), specifying economic activities of the enterprises, upon receipt of revised information from respondents, as well as when the latest data are received from administrative sources.
In 2020 every months 1 456 enterprises are surveyed; in 2018, their share in total volume of industrial production constituted 80 %.
Industrial production output and turnover are calculated by summing data submitted by the enterprise in accordance with NACE Rev. 2 sections, divisions, groups and classes.
Data are collected and published in compliance with Statistical Classification of Economic Activities in the European Community (NACE Rev. 2).
Data revisions are made, if respondent specifies, supplements or corrects data on some of the previous periods or if methodology is specified.
