The IPI adjusted by working days (Base 2010=100) decreased by 0.1% on a year-over-year basis in Catalonia in January 2017. By large industrial sectors, consumer goods and intermediate goods recorded decreases (−2.5% and −0.7%, respectively); while increased energy (7.6%) and equipment goods (2.4%).
In this same period the index of industrial production (which does not include the energy and not adjusted by working days) increased by 6.7% respect to the year before.
The Industrial Production Index is a short-term indicator that measures the monthly evolution in the volume of gross added value generated by industrial branches and by industry as a whole. It therefore measures the changes in industrial production without the price effect. Based on data from INE, Idescat makes a tabulation by major industrial sectors as well as by sections and divisions in the CCAE-2009. It also calculates the IPI corrected for calendar effects.
