    In the mining industry and quarrying in January-April 2023, the IPP was 102%, due to an increase in the production of crude oil (103.2%), natural gas (104.4%), ores other than iron (103.2%) and other minerals (120.6%).

    In the manufacturing industry, the IPP in the reporting period compared to the same period in 2022 amounted to 105.1%. The growth was recorded in the production of food by 7.7%, beverages – by 6.9%, refined petroleum products - by 3.7%, basic pharmaceutical products and pharmaceuticals - by 3.6%, rubber and plastic products – by 8.1%, finished metal products, except machinery and equipment – by 15.8%, mechanical engineering - by 35.9%.

    In the supply of electricity, gas, steam, hot water and conditioned air, the IPP amounted to 105.9% due to an increase in the production and distribution of gaseous fuel through pipelines by 30.3%, and the supply of steam, hot water and conditioned air by 7.9%.

    In water supply, collection, treatment and disposal of waste, activities to eliminate pollution, the IPP in January-April 2023 amounted to 107.4%. The volumes of wastewater collection and treatment increased by 8.9%, pollution elimination activities and other waste disposal services increased by 2.6 times.

    An increase in production volumes was recorded in 15 regions of the republic, a decrease is observed in Aktobe, Karagandy, Kyzylorda regions, Astana and Shymkent city.

    January-April 2023

    The volume of industrial production in value terms is the cost of all finished products (products) produced by the en-terprise, semi-finished products of its production (both from its own raw materials and materials, and from raw materials and materials of the customer), intended for sale to the side, its capital construction and its non-industrial divisions , issu-ing to its employees on account of wages, as well as works and services of an industrial nature, performed on orders.

    The volume of industrial production in physical terms is the output of specific types of products in physical terms. The volume of industrial production in physical terms is taken into account in terms of gross output, including products spent on industrial and production needs within a given enterprise and produced from raw materials supplied by the customer.

    The index of industrial production is a relative indicator that characterizes the change in the volume of industrial pro-duction in the periods being compared.

    Methodological notes

    The information base for the formation of indicators of industrial products (goods, services) is the primary data of na-tionwide statistical observations of industrial enterprises, enterprises with a secondary activity of "Industry", individual entrepreneurs, peasant or farm enterprises.

    To calculate the index of industrial production, a method is used based on the dynamics of physical indicators for an established set (basket) of representative goods, followed by a step-by-step aggregation of individual (commodity) indices into indices by types of economic activity. Indices for large populations are calculated as a weighted average of the con-stituent elements of these populations.
