The IPI adjusted by working days (Base 2010=100) increased by 6.8% on a year-over-year basis in Catalonia in August 2017. By large industrial sectors, recorded increases all sectors: the equipment goods (15.3%), intermediate goods (7.8%), energy (4.2%) and consumer goods (3.8%).
In this same period the index of industrial production (which does not include the energy and not adjusted by working days) increased by 7.4% 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.
