Please note: all the series are seasonally (SA) and working-day adjusted (WDA).
The commentary shows variations of subsections by decreasing contribution. The contribution of a subsection depends on the extent of the change and on its weight.
In February 2015, output was stable in the manufacturing industry (0.0%, after –0.3% in January), as well as in the industry as a whole (0.0% after +0.3% in January).
Over the last three months, output rose in the manufacturing sector (+0.6% q-o-q) and more strongly in the industry as a whole (+1.3%, q-o-q).
Output improved in mining, quarrying, energy and water supply (+4.3%), in other manufacturing (+0.7%), in the manufacture of transport equipment (+2.4%) and in the manufacture of coke and refined petroleum products (+3.4%). It remained stable in the manufacture of food products and beverages. Conversely, output declined in the manufacture of electrical and electronic equipment; machine equipment (–0.8%).
Manufacturing output of the last three months diminished compared to the same months of the previous year (–0.5% y-o-y). In contrast, overall industrial output increased (+0.3% y-o-y).
Output increased sharply in mining, quarrying, energy and water supply (+3.8%), in the manufacture of transport equipment (+2.2%) and more strongly in the manufacture of coke and refined petroleum products (+13.2%).
On the contrary, output went down in the manufacture of electrical and electronic equipment (–3.2%), in other manufacturing (–0.4%) and in the manufacture of food products and beverages (–1.2%).

Output increased in electricity, gas, steam and air-conditioning supply (+0.8%); but decreased in mining and quarrying (–3.5%).
Output improved again in the manufacture of coke and refined petroleum products (+3.5% after +1.3%).
Output decreased in the manufacture of food products and beverages (–0.7%), which is mostly due to the manufacture of beverages and baked goods.
|(in point %)|
|How to read it: in the manufacturing sector, the SA-WDA evolution between December 2014 and January 2015 is revised by –0.20 point: –0.41 is due to the raw data revision and 0.21 to the new calculation of the SA-WDA coefficients.|
