Historique :

These indices have been calculated since 1998.

Source d'information :

The indices are calculated by INSEE based on the data collected by INSEE's Centre for Industrial Statistics (formerly the Industrial Studies and Statistics Service - Sessi - of the Ministry for Industry) and by the professional organisations accredited to conduct the branch surveys.

This is the same branch survey programme that is used for the industrial production index (IPI). As the statistical weight of small businesses in industry is low, only businesses with more than 20 employees are involved.

Méthodologie :

The monthly index of orders in value received by industry is calculated as a Laspeyres index by aggregating the elementary indices with fixed weightings.

As a value index, it theoretically has no base and simply has a reference period. Since January 2009, however, it has had a base and reference of 100 for the year 2005.

The series are adjusted for seasonal variations (CVS) and calendar or "working days" effects (CJO) in order to render the monthly index variations more easily interpretable.

Due to the year-on-year variations in the composition of years in terms of working days (presence of leap years, positioning in the week of different public holidays, etc.), the annual mean of the CVS-CJO indices may differ slightly from that of the gross indices.
