DEFINITIONS

 

Industrial production — industrial sales ± change in stocks.

Number of persons employed — the total number of persons who work in the observation unit (inclusive of working proprietors, partners working regularly in the unit and unpaid family workers), as well as persons who work outside the unit but are on the staff list and on the payroll of the unit (e.g. sales representatives, delivery personnel, repair and maintenance teams). Included are also persons absent for a short period (e.g. sick leave, paid leave or special leave), and those on strike, but not those absent for an indefinite period. The number of persons employed also includes part-time workers who are regarded as such under the laws of the country concerned and who are on the payroll, as well as seasonal workers, apprentices and home workers on the payroll.

The number of persons employed excludes manpower supplied to the unit by other enterprises, persons carrying out repair and maintenance work in the enquiry unit on behalf of other enterprises.

Unpaid family workers refer to persons who live with the proprietor of the unit and work regularly for the unit, but do not have a contract of service and do not receive a fixed sum for the work they perform. This is limited to those persons who are not included on the payroll of another unit as their principal occupation.

Number of persons employed is calculated as average of a quarter.

Number of hours worked — hours actually worked during normal working hours and hours worked in addition to those. If the exact number of hours actually worked is not known, it may be estimated on the basis of the theoretical number of working hours.

Personnel costs — wages and salaries + employers’ social security taxes.

Sales index shows the change in the value of sold industrial production in current prices compared to the base period.

The unadjusted volume index of industrial production shows the change in the value of industrial production in constant prices compared to the base period. The producer price index is used for calculating the production values in constant prices.

The working-day adjusted volume index of industrial production shows the change in the volume of industrial production taking into account the number of working days in a month. It is calculated only in comparison with the corresponding period of the previous year.

The seasonally adjusted volume index of industrial production shows the change in the volume of industrial production, which has not been influenced by seasonally recurring factors. It is calculated only in comparison with the previous period (month or quarter).

 

METHODOLOGY

 

The data are collected from all enterprises with 50 or more employees and from enterprises with less than 50 employees, whose sales in 2006 exceeded 20 million kroons. The data were not expanded to the population of enterprises. According to the revised data of 2006, the output of these enterprises accounted for 85% of the total industrial output in 2006. Enterprises have been divided into groups by economic activity according to the Estonian Classification of Economic Activities (EMTAK), which is based on the NACE (Statistical Classification of Economic Activities in the European Community) Rev. 1.1.

The volume index is calculated as a chained Paasche index. First, an elementary index (previous month = 100) is calculated. Elementary indices are deflated by PPI, in energy and mining — by quantities. Then all indices (previous month = 100) are recalculated to the base 2006 = 100 (same period the weights of which are used). By the means of weights, these indices are aggregated. The value added at factor cost from the latest industrial annual survey is used as weights (for the years 2006–2008, the 2006 final value added is used as weights). Weights are changed every year. By multiplying all 2006 = 100 indices by the corres­ponding average of the 2006 in the base year 2000, they are converted into gross indices (2000 = 100). Indices for any desired period can be calculated from the chain index 2000 = 100 by dividing the index of the desired period by the index of the comparison period.

The new orders index is calculated as a simple index. First, an elementary index (average of previous year = 100) is calculated. Then all indices (average of previous year = 100) are recalculated to the base 2006 = 100 (the same year the weights of which are used). By the means of weights, these indices are aggregated. The turnover from the latest industrial annual survey is used as weights (for the years 2006-2008, the 2006 final turnover is used as weights). The export and domestic new orders indices are calculated separately and than aggregated to the total new orders index.

Productivity indicators were calculated by following formulas:
