METHODOLOGICAL NOTE
Due to the second wave of the coronavirus epidemic, SURS is once again faced with difficulties in data collection. Where the prices of services could not be collected or the services were not performed, missing data were edited with imputation procedures. As a result, in some activities, such as I55 Accommodation, N78 Employment activities, N79 Travel agency, tour operator reservation service and related activities, and N82 Office administrative, office support and other business support activities, data are slightly less reliable than usually.
