Data Change: Malaysia subnational - GVA by industry - Re-referenced to 2015
Friday, 11 Oct 2019 10:57 ET
By Annie Kao
September 2019 -- For the annual national accounts of the states of Malaysia, including the production approach (gross value added), the source has advanced the currency reference year from 2010 to 2015 (180 annual series 2010 to 2017, replaced by 288 from 2015).

In response, we have:

  1. Archived the predecessors (currency reference year 2010, 2010 to 2017) by renaming with an "_10" specifier, marking metadata as "discontinued", and segregating in the catalog.
  2. Created one-for-one replacements (ref 2015), which start at 2015.
  3. Expanded our extract with detailed industries.
  4. Extended series back to 2005 using their respective predecessors.

Dataset properties:

  • Framework: UN SNA 2008
  • Classification: MSIC 2008, which is aligned with UN ISIC Rev. 4
  • Measurements: Millions of Malaysian ringgit at constant year-2015 prices (Mil. 2015 MYR)
  • Adjustment: Not applicable
  • Geo coverage: All 13 states and two federal territories
  • Do all concept-geo pairs exist: No
  • Native frequency: Annual
  • Reported start date: 2015

The series reside in the historical catalog (Malaysia » National Accounts » By Value Added » Annual) and include, for example: 

  • NACSGDPSV_10UA.IMYS_JO   = [DISCONTINUED] National accounts: Production approach - Gross domestic product - Services, (Mil. 2010 MYR) - for Johor
  • NACSGDPWETC_10UA.IMYS_SA = [DISCONTINUED] Utilities; transportation and storage; information and communication, (Mil. 2010 MYR) - for Sarawak
  • NACSGDPSVUA.IMYS_KP      = Services, (Mil. 2015 MYR) - for W.P. Kuala Lumpur
  • NACSGDPWETCUA.IMYS_PR    = Utilities; transportation and storage; information and communication, (Mil. 2015 MYR) - for Perlis

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.

About the dataset

The presentation includes a separate item for import duties (i.e., one kind of tax), but "taxes less subsidies" are otherwise incorporated into each industry line item; hence, they are valued as GDP, not GVA, and our mnemonics and metadata reflect this.

The reported set of industries varies by area.
