Average price of energy resources
Average price of energy resources is calculated by dividing costs of energy resources with volume of energy resources purchased. Average prices are given excluding value added tax (VAT).
Average prices of energy resources for final consumers are calculated in compliance with the methodology of the Energy Balance.
Survey method and data source
Data on average prices of energy resources are acquired with the help of calculations from annual statistical report form 2-EK "Report on purchase and use of energy resources".
Statistical population covers all economically active merchants, budgetary institutions, associations and foundations engaged in the production, import, export, consumption and sale of energy resources.
Consumption of fuel in sectors of the national economy is found out by surveying State and local government enterprises of all sectors regardless the number of persons employed and by surveying other enterprises employing 80 and more persons. Every year approximately 6 thousand respondents are surveyed. Data on enterprises and organisations employing less than 80 persons are acquired with the help of random sampling and afterwards obtained results are extrapolated.
Data on average prices of energy resources are compiled and calculated in accordance with:
- Combined Nomenclature (CN);
- Statistical Classification of Economic Activities (NACE Rev. 1.1);
- Statistical Classification of Economic Activities (NACE Rev. 2).
