We draw your attention to the fact that the definition of the IRI calendar periods will change from 10 July 2020.

This change of calendar is decided by our data provider SMKT: IRI, and is done every 6 years in order to align its calendar as close as possible to the civil calendar.

This implies a shift in the definition of the IRI periods, and this over the whole history, for example let's take P1 2020:

In the previous IRI calendar, P1 2020 started on Dec. 30, 2019 (week 2105) and ended on Jan. 26, 2020 (week 2108) :

In the new IRI calendar P1 2020 starts on Jan. 06,2020 (week 2106) and ends on

Feb. 02, 2020 (week 2109) :

You will find below the calendar of type 445 applicable from 10th July, 2020 :
