Introduction of Base 2015 series
The Industrial Production & Turnover indices have been compiled with reference to base year 2015=100. The new series has been calculated using updated weights from the Census of Industrial Production 2015 and the rebased Wholesale Price Index 2015 = 100 (See Background Notes). The revised series are available on StatBank.
