All 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.

Over a year, manufacturing output decreased (−0.7%)

In the manufacturing industry, output of the last quarter was lower than the same quarter of 2018 (−0.7%), as well as in the whole industry (−0.8%).

Over a year, output slumped in the manufacture of coke and refined petroleum products (−28.3%). It decreased also in the manufacture of transport equipment (−3.3%), in the manufacture of machinery and equipment goods (−2.0%) and in mining and quarrying, energy, water supply (−1.0%). In contrast, output increased slightly in “other manufacturing” (+0.6%) and in the manufacture of food products and beverages (+0.3%).
