About Laundry and textile service index

Statistics Norway (SCB) produces a Laundry and textile service index on behalf of the Laundry Association Service AB (subsidiary of The Swedish Textile Service Association). The purpose is to measure changes in the costs of the laundry industry. The laundry and textile service index can be used to adjust prices in different types of contracts.

The laundry and textile service index has January 2004 as the base month. During 2018/2019, the Laundry and Textile Service Index underwent a review in cooperation between Statistics Sweden and The Swedish Textile Service Association. This resulted in new weights as of August 2019.


The index is available at www.tvä
