Weights are derived from industry survey data on production output in value terms at current prices for the base year for the full range of organizations. Weights for calculating the PPI are revised annually when the PPI for January of the reference year is calculated. The base year is the year preceding the previous year. The frequency with which the index is re-based has not been determined.
