… and to a lesser extent in the manufacture of electrical and electronic equipment, machine equipment (-0.5%).

Output went down in the manufacture of electrical equipment (-3.4%). However, it improved in the manufacture of computer, electronic and optical products (+0.7%) and in the manufacture of machinery and equipment n.e.c. (+0.5%).

Output increased in the manufacture of coke and refined petroleum products (+3.6%).

Output partially recovered in the manufacture of coke and refined petroleum products (+3.6%), after a strong decrease in September (-11,2%).

Revisions: -0.23 in September

Measure of variations’ revisions
(in point %)
Note of reading : in the manufacturing, the SA-WDA evolution between August and September is revised by -0.23 point : 0.00 is due to the raw serie's revision and -0.23 to the new calculation of the SA-WDA.
