About Outstanding Orders of Communication Equipment

Frank Z

I was looking at the value of machinery order table (http://kosis.kr/statHtml/statHtml.do?orgId=101&tblId=DT_1F47&conn_path=I2), and I noticed there was a huge increase of the outstanding orders of communication equipment from 1,548 Mil.Won of December 2016 to 1,057,254 Mil.Won of January. Could you please give a reason of this increase?

Also the Index of shipment for domestic market(original index) for 'Mining of Metal Ores' in this table (http://kosis.kr/statHtml/statHtml.do?orgId=101&tblId=DT_1F01016&conn_path=I2) decreased from 58.8 of December 2016 to 4.5 of January 2017. Is there also a reason for this decrease?

Thank you and I appreciate your time and assistance.

Dear Frank Z 

Thank for using the KOSIS website.

1. The huge increase of outstanding orders of communication equipment was caused by annual revision (2015~2016) and sample change, in other words, the change in survey enterprises.

2. The drop in the Index of shipment for 'Mining of Metal Ores' was caused by the decrease in the shipment for domestic market for iron ores. The production and shipment showed a decrease due to internal conditions of production enterprises.

Best regards,
