In February 2013, manufacturing output increased (+0.8%), as well as in industrial production as a whole (+0.7%).

During the last three months, manufacturing output decreased slightly (-0.3%)…

During the last three months (q-o-q), output decreased slightly in the manufacturing sector (-0.3%), as well as industry as a whole (-0.1%).

Output declined in the manufacture of electrical and electronic equipment (-1.3%), in the manufacture of transport equipment (-1.3%) and was stable in other manufacturing (-0.1%). On the contrary, output increased in the manufacture of coke and refined petroleum products (+3.6%).

…but is lower than its last year’s level by 3.4%.

Manufacturing output fell by 3.4% (y-o-y).

Output went down sharply in other manufacturing (-3.2%) and even more in the manufacture of transport equipment (-9.5%). It decreased to a lesser extent in the manufacture of electrical and electronic equipment and machine equipment (-0.9%). Manufacturing output fell in the manufacture of coke and refined petroleum products (-6.3%).

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