Attenzione!

Correttamente Eurostat titola riportando i rapporti 2021Q2 / 2021Q1.

Infatti il 2020Q2 è stato il peggior semestre con un secco -15%. Di conseguenza, il rapporto 2021Q2 / 2020Q2 è risultato essere abnormemente elevato.

Eurostat non ha pubblicato il riscontro contro l’ultimo semestre prima della crisi economica.
