Thursday, 08 Nov 2018 18:37 ET
By Jaclyn Zylka
Summary
April 2018 -- For the subnational Labor Force Survey for Italy, Moody's Analytics has overhauled our extract (904 quarterly series 1977 to 2017 discontinued, 156 new series from 1977, 589 series renamed).
Detail

We have overhauled the dataset by:

  1. Standardizing geo codes:
    • IITA_GILSZ » IITA_SOIS = NUTS 1 Mezzogiorno
    • IITA_CENR  » IITA_CENT = NUTS 1 Centro
    • IITA_NOEA  » IITA_NOES = NUTS 1 Nord-est
    • IITA_MR    » IITA_MA   = NUTS 2 Marche
    • IITA_EO    » IITA_ER   = NUTS 2 Emilia-Romagna
  2. Deleting duplicate series.
  3. Discontinuing series that were terminated by the source (904), including:
    • Activity rates, where working-age population is defined as 16 years and older
    • Employment to population ratios for all geos
  4. Adding new series (156).
  5. Standardizing metadata.
  6. Standardizing mnemonics (589 series renamed).

Dataset properties:

    • Labor force
    • Employment
    • Unemployment
    • Unemployment rate
    • Long-term unemployment rate
    • Participation rate (activity rate)
  • Figures: Percent (%) or thousands of persons (Ths. #)
  • Adjustment: Seasonally adjusted (SA) or not (NSA)
  • Geo coverage:
    • Country
    • NUTS 1 level areas
    • NUTS 2 level areas
    • NUTS 3 level areas
  • Do all concept-geo pairs exist? No
  • Native frequency: Quarterly
  • Start date: As early as 1977Q1
  • Subject to revisions? Yes

The series reside in the historical catalog (Italy » Labor and Wages » Labor force survey » Quarterly) and include, for example, the following. A complete concordance of predecessor, replacement and aliased mnemonics is attached.

  • LW%PRT15GUQ.IITA        = Labor force survey: Activity rate - Both sexes - Ages 15 and older, (%, NSA)
  • LW%PRTEDT16UQ.IITA_NOES = [DISCONTINUED] Labor Force Survey: Activity Rate - Total - tertiary - 16 years and over, (%, NSA) - for NUTS 1 Nord-est
  • LWQEMMAFUQ.IITA_AB      = Labor Force Survey: Employment - Males - Agriculture; forestry and fishing [A to B], (Ths. #, NSA) - for NUTS 2 Abruzzo

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.
