The value added of the Swedish industrial sector has earlier been calculated by Osten Johansson (ÖJ)2 and the Economic Research Institute (Konjunkturinstituiet, KI). 3 However, these calculations have proved to be in need of revision on various points. In the following pages new calculations are shown for a shorter period, 1941–51. Furthermore, an attempt has been made to construct a new price index since the earlier calculations of fixed prices for the industrial production also have certain weaknesses.
