Among the main industries, output increased most in mining and quarrying, which grew by 59.5 per cent compared with the year before. Production of electricity grew by 2.4 per cent from a year ago, according to an official release.
Capacity utilisation rate in manufacturing (C) was 80.2 per cent in August, or 1.3 percentage points lower than one year earlier.

In the metal industry, capacity utilisation rate was 79 per cent in August, which was 2.6 percentage points lower than one year earlier.
Revised data for August 2013 will be published at 9 am on 8 November 2013 in connection with the release of industrial output data for September 2013.
The revision is influenced by the estimation used in the latest release which concerns the periodic tax return data used for enterprises with fewer than 50 employees. 
Because of the method used, seasonally adjusted figures for previous months may change even if the original figures do not become revised. The seasonally adjusted figures will also be adjusted for working days.
