The calendar adjusted industrial production index decreased by 8.2 % compared with June 2011 (calendar working days in June 2012 being the same as in June 2011); in the period January- June 2012 the percentage change was -7.0 compared with the same period of 2011.

The unadjusted index of industrial production decreased by 8.2% compared with June 2011.
