Results of quantification procedures and properties of expectations series obtained for two data vintages are described. Volume index of production sold in manufacturing is defined for end-of-sample and real time data, and evaluated against expectations expressed in business tendency surveys. Empirical analysis confirms that while there are only minor differences in quantification results with respect to data vintage, properties of expectations time series obtained on their basis do diverge.
