Index calculation to be renewed
The calculation of the volume and unit value indexes of foreign trade will be renewed starting with the indexes for January 2013.
In the future, all indexes will be published separately for internal and external trade in terms of both import and export. The new base year is 2010 (2010=100). Index headings will be based on the CPA 2008 product classification (heading levels 1-3) and will be published earlier than before - within nine weeks of the end of the statistical reference month. All indexes will be available also in the Uljas database in the future. The indexes for January 2013 will be published on 28 March 2013.
