Revisions

When the Production Value Index is published for a new month, the indices for the two previous months are also revised, if new information has been added. Administrative data from the Swedish Tax Agency is used quarterly to increase the number of companies that are examined. This means that definitive quarterly statistics are based on a calculation on all the companies in the population. Administrative data is used every quarter to improve the quality of the Production Value Index and reduce the response burden. Normally, the material is revised between two and four months backwards, depending on when in the quarter the reference month falls. In connection with the publication of the first and second months in a quarter, the entire previous quarter is revised. The series, corrected for calendar and seasonal effects and trend estimates, is always revised from January 2010 and forward. Information regarding major revisions will be published at:

Definitions and explanations

The Production Value Index (PVI) describes developments in the private sector production of goods and services each month. Production value is a measure used to calculate the GDP that includes net turnover from industry and service production, and the trade margin (revenue from sales minus costs of retail goods).

PVI has been produced since the reference month September 2017 and replaces the Business Production Index.
