(Year 2018 = 100)
In order to reflect the changes in the relative importance of products or product groups within the Industrial Sector, a new set of weights has been calculated with year 2018 as base period, the previous one being 2013. The weights for QIIP have been derived from the results of the 2018 Census of Economic Activities.
This issue of the Economic and Social Indicators on Quarterly Index of Industrial Production (QIIP) for the first quarter of 2022 will be posted on Statistics Mauritius website on 23 June 2022.
