Hungary’s industrial output down 3% in April
The volume of industrial output in Hungary dropped by 3% in April, compared to the same month a year earlier, while based on working day-adjusted data, production grew by 2.5%, according to a first release of data put out today by the Central Statistical Office (KSH).
The KSH noted that the significant difference between raw and working day-adjusted data is due to the fact that there were three fewer working days this April than a year earlier.
The volume of industrial production in April was below the level of the previous month by 0.8%, according to seasonally and working day-adjusted indices.
In the January-April period, production was up by 4.9%, compared to the corresponding four months a year earlier.
The KSH will publish its second estimate of April data on June 14.
