Purpose and brief description
As the sector of services is steadily gaining importance compared to the sector of industry, an output price index for services was added to the European Regulation concerning short-term statistics. This new index will be calculated on a quarterly basis by Statbel.
The output price index for services is currently measuring the change in prices with services companies from such branches as transport, information services and telecommunication. The field will be extended progressively, eventually to cover almost the full economic range of the services sector
