In comparing the third quarter of 2023 to the previous three-month period, the mining sector’s index increased by 1.2 percent, attributed to a rise in the “extraction of crude oil and natural gas” group and a decrease in other mining and quarrying.

The electricity supply sector’s index surged by 35.2 percent, though its small relative weight had a negligible impact on the general index, and the water supply sector’s index increased by 4.9 percent, with minimal impact on the general index due to its small relative weight.
Comparing the third quarter of this year to the corresponding period of 2022, the data showed that the mining sector’s index increased by 1.1 percent, driven by a rise in the “extraction of crude oil and natural gas” group and a decrease in other mining and quarrying.

The electricity supply sector’s index rose by 7.6 percent, with minimal impact on the general index and the water supply sector’s index increased by 1.4 percent, with insignificant impact on the general index due to its small relative weight.
