Making sense of the report

The report is split into 3 distinct areas, Part I; Percentage increase by sector, Part II; Percentage decrease by sector and Part III Movement by Sector.

Part I - Percentage Increase by Industry Sector

Part I of the OEI report shows the percentage increase for each industry sector. A total of percentages in Part I of the report equals 100%, therefore each percentage figure for each industry sector is representative of the percentage increase of that industry sector against the total increases across all sectors.

Part II - Percentage Decrease by Industry Sector

Part II of the OEI report shows the percentage decrease for each industry sector. A total of percentages in Part II of the report equals 100%, therefore each percentage figure for each industry sector is representative of the percentage decrease of that industry sector against the total decreases across all sectors.

Part III - Movement by Industry Sector

Part III of the OEI report shows the percentage movement for each industry sector. These figures are not derived from Part I or Part II of the report directly, but are representative of total losses or gains for each industry sector.

*All percentages have been rounded to the nearest whole number.
