Data Change: Luxembourg - RSI - Extended
Friday, 19 May 2017 11:20 ET
By Richard Grim
Summary
April 2017 -- For the detailed "retail turnover index" dataset, the source has added six years of history (24 monthly series 2011-2017, replaced from 2005). It has also added a component for "retail sale except automotive fuel, mail order, internet" (two new monthly series from 2014).
Detail

The source has added six years of history, changing the start dates from 2011 to 2005. The new component is "Retail sale except automotive fuel in specialised store and sale via mail order or internet [47 ex. [47.3; 47.91]]," in current and constant prices; these start at January 2014.

In response, we have:

  1. Replaced the existing series. The replacements have longer history and standardized mnemonics.
  2. Recreated our seasonally adjusted supplements for the all-items indexes.
  3. Added two series, which start at January 2014 (*).

That is:

  • Before:
    • Index base year: 2010
    • Components: 11
    • Date range: January 2011 to January 2017
    • Concept code pattern: WRIR(A,O)R?UM
  • After:
    • Index base year: 2010
    • Components: 12
    • Date range: January 2005 (*) to present
    • Concept code pattern: WR(I,J)?UM

We have archived the predecessors (January 2007 to January 2017) by marking their metadata as "discontinued" and by segregating in the catalog. Properties are otherwise unchanged: Figures are value or volume indexes (i.e., at current or constant prices) based to 2010 (Index 2010=100, Vol. Index 2010=100), not seasonally adjusted (NSA). The activities classification is NACE Rev. 2.

The active series reside in our historical catalog (Luxembourg » Consumer » Retail turnover index » Constant prices | Current prices) and the predecessors under the associated "discontinued" node. They include, for example:

  • WRIRAR47UM.ILUX     = [DISCONTINUED] Retail trade; except of motor vehicles and motorcycles [47], (Index 2010=100, NSA)
  • WRI47UM.ILUX        = Retail trade; except of motor vehicles and motorcycles [47], (Index 2010=100, NSA)
  • WRIROR477479UM.ILUX = [DISCONTINUED] Other retail trade, (Vol. Index 2010=100, NSA)
  • WRJROTHRUM.ILUX     = Other retail trade, (Vol. Index 2010=100, NSA)
  • WRJRXFMIUM.ILUX     = Retail sale except automotive fuel in specialised store and sale via mail order or internet [47 ex. [47.3; 47.91]], (Vol. Index 2010=100, 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.

Please be aware that:

  • The terms "retail turnover index" and "retail sales index" (or "RSI") are synonymous, and to facilitate keyword search, Data Buffet News has standardized on the latter.
  • Our notation [A ex. [B; C]] means "category A excluding aggregate of categories B and C." The syntax to describe this situation varies by source; ours is more verbose, but unambiguous.
