The producer price index of industrial output (PPI) covers entire country and are comparable with other European Union countries.
The producer price indices of industrial output (PPI) are comparable across time. The indices can be chain-linked to make comparisons over time.
There are no direct benchmark figures to check cross domain coherence.
The internal consistency of the data is ensured by the use of a common methodology for data collection and data aggregation. The sub-indices are coherent with the total index.
The data revision policy and notification of corrections are described in the section Principles of dissemination of official statistics of the website of Statistics Estonia.
The published data may be revised within three months from the end of the reference period, if the methodology is modified, errors are discovered, new or better data become available.

The input data are checked and, if necessary, corrected according to specified rules, and the compliance of calculated statistics with the quality requirements is checked as well: comparisons are made with previous periods, internal coherence, the coverage of the population and the response rate are checked.
On the bases of collected data Laspeyres-type price indices are calculated. Microdata are aggregated to the required level.
Since 2002 Statistics Estonia updates the weights system of the producer price index of industrial output and base prices for calculation every year. In the current year (t) the base prices for the calculation of the producer price index were the prices of the last year (t-1) December. The weights system corresponds to the industrial sales structure of enterprises in the year t-2. December of the last year (t-1) was the linking month.
The annual index has been calculated as the average of twelve months.
