In February 2014, manufacturing output increased (+0.3%)

In February 2014, manufacturing output increased by 0.3%, continuing on the upward trend begun in October 2013. Output was almost stable in industrial production as a whole (+0.1%, after –0.3% in January 2014).

During the last three months, manufacturing output improved (+0.8%)…

During the last three months (q-o-q), output improved in the manufacturing sector (+0.8%), and was almost stable in industry as a whole (+0.1%).

Output rose in other manufacturing (+1.2%), in the manufacture of food products and beverages (+1.6%) and in the manufacture of coke and refined petroleum products (+3.4%). On the other hand, output declined in the manufacture of electrical and electronic equipment; machine equipment (–0.8%) as well as in the manufacture of transport equipment (–0.6%).

… and was higher than its last year’s level by 1.1%.

Manufacturing output went up by 1.1% (y-o-y).

Output soared in the manufacture of transport equipment (+7.0%) and improved in a less sustained pace in other manufacturing (+0.7%) and in the manufacture of electrical and electronic equipment; machine equipment (+1.0%). On the opposite, output dropped in the manufacture of coke and refined petroleum products (–6.7%) and slipped in the manufacture of food products and beverages (–0.8%).

Please note: all the series are adjusted for seasonal variations (SA) and the number of working days (WDA).
