This edition of the Commentary contains the first set of figures derived from the rebased index of production and construction. These are based on 1985 = 100 rather than 1980 = 100. However, the rebasing involves much more than simply setting 1985 as the base year, and the purpose of this note is to highlight some of the issues raised by the rebasing. A forthcoming Industry Department for Scotland statistical bulletin will explain the changes in full detail.
