The IPI of the entire Spanish industry for the month of August also declined by 0.4 percent year-on-year, which is contrast to the 0.6 percent increase registered in the month of July, 2013.

The IPI measures the monthly progress and productivity of industries, including extractive industries and the manufacturing sector. This indicator reflects only the quantity and quality of production, eliminating the influence of prices. This methodology is fully harmonized with the European Union countries.
