Statistical presentation
Data description

• The survey on "Producer prices on the internal market for forestry products" is carried out in two phases. During the first phase, information on the quantitative and qualitative characteristics and prices of the wood in the rough sold is collected. On the basis of this information, after a selection of the most frequently -sold products, a representative nomenclature of the survey is built-up. Updating of the product nomenclature can be done over a period of time if it is found that a significant part of the products defined during the first phase of the survey are no longer sold on the market. In the second phase of the survey, information on the following variables is regularly (quarterly) collected:

• Producer prices of wood in the rough by months in the observed period.

• Quantity of sales of wood in the rough. The information gathered during the second phase of the survey is used to calculate quarterly and annual data on average sale prices and producer price indices in forestry at two bases - the corresponding quarter of the previous year and the previous year and to develop a weighting scheme for weighting the indices.

The main purpose of producer price indices in the forestry is:

• To observe the changes in the producer prices trend in forestry;

• To calculate deflators of forest output figures.

Classification system

For data compilation next classifications are used:

• Classification of Economic Activities in Bulgaria (NACE 2008)

• Nomenclature of agricultural, forestry and fisheries production (PRODAGRO)

• The nomenclature of the representative products observed in the survey, defined by their quantitative characteristics for the following groups: - wood in the rough from coniferous species; - wood in the rough from non-coniferous species

Sector coverage

The survey covers the sales of wood in the rough on the domestic market by logging enterprises, which are "franco forest depot of the producer" (temporary forest depot).

Statistical concepts and definitions

• Producer price in Forestry

This is the price of the timber actually sold. It does not include VAT and other taxes paid, as well as delivery, transportation, storage and other costs incurred in the sale. Producer price is calculated quarterly as the arithmetic mean of the average monthly sales prices of the defined representative product.

• Producer Price Indices in Forestry

The indices are calculated by the Laspeyre’s formula. It can be calculated for a period of several years without being necessary to change the list of selected representative products or the weights. Furthermore the parameters used for the calculation of the indices are well known at the time the base is established. Changes only need to be made when the evolution in the products used and in their relative importance does not meet the basic structure.

• A weighting scheme for calculating the Producer Price Indices in Forestry

For the calculation of Producer Price Indices in Forestry a weighting scheme should be available. For weights, the values of sales of the observed forestry products are used in the respective period (base) - quarter or year. Weights are calculated in the framework of the Survey on producer prices in the forestry.

Statistical unit

Reporting unit - Information is provided by logging companies that produce and sell wood in the rough on the domestic market. Statistical unit - the unit price of sales of wood in the rough on the temporary forest depot.

Statistical population

Enterprises that have submitted data on the Annual Report of forestry enterprises, whether logging is primary or secondary activity to them. The enterprises are selected according to the value of sales in the previous year. The survey includes all enterprises above a certain threshold value.

Reference area

The survey covers the entire territory of the country.

Time coverage

2015 onwards

Base period

Corresponding quarter of previous year = 100

Previous year = 100

Unit of measure

The price is measured in BGN for a solid cubic meter. Quantities of sales are measured in solid cubic meters.

Reference period

Completeness

In the scope of the survey, information is collected on the sale prices of all major categories of wood in the rough according to the used National nomenclature of production in Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (PRODAGRO). This ensures the representativeness of data on producer price indices in the forestry.

Accuracy and reliability
Overall accuracy

The accuracy of the data is achieved by providing a representative nomenclature of observed products, maintaining the required number of price registrations, achieving the defined scope of domestic sales of wood in the rough and developing reliable statistical tools, including IT environment for collection and control of data.
