Data Change: Poland - Res stage of construction
Friday, 15 Mar 2019 15:17 ET
By Ian Vaughan
February 2019 -- For residential stage of construction by owner for Poland, concurrent with dissemination of results for January 2019, the source has replaced the "other" category with four specific ownership categories (three monthly series 2007 to 2018, replaced by 11 from 2019).

In a direct communication, the source confirmed:

Definitions of construction forms were changed in 2018 and since then they have been permanent.

In response, we have:

  1. Archived the predecessors ("other", as early as 2007m4 to 2018m12) by marking the metadata and catalog entries as "discontinued".
  2. Created replacements (for rent, municipal, public building society, company), starting 2019m1, with standardized mnemonics.
  3. Refurbished the mnemonics of existing series. For backwards compatibility, we have preserved the prior mnemonics as aliases.

Active dataset properties:

  • Measurement: Unitary count of dwellings (#)
  • Adjustment: Not seasonally adjusted (NSA)
  • Do all stage-owner combinations exist? No
  • Geo coverage: Country
  • Native frequency: Monthly 
  • Start date: January 2019

The series reside in the historical catalog (Poland » Real Estate » Residential » Stage of construction » Permits | Starts | Completions) and include, for example:

  • HSQPMTRPRUM.IPOL = Real estate: Residential - Permits granted - Private, (#, NSA)
  • HSQSTRRRNUM.IPOL = Construction begun - For rent, (#, NSA)
  • HSQCMPRTUM.IPOL  = Dwellings completed - Total, (#, NSA)

Because catalog locations are subject to change, the upper-right search box on DataBuffet.com provides a "find in catalog" mode that accepts a mnemonic.
