Data Change: Colombia - IPI - Rebased to 2018
Thursday, 18 Apr 2019 15:54 ET
By Jason Flynn
March 2019 -- For the industrial production index of Colombia, concurrent with dissemination of results for January, the source has advanced the base year from 2014 to 2018 (14 monthly series 1990 to 2018, replaced from 2018). The survey has been redesigned (27 new series from 2018).

The source wrote (citation):

The National Administrative Department of Statistics, in a permanent effort to improve and update the measurement of economic statistics, from the officialization of the information of the month of January 2019, presents the results of the new Monthly Manufacturing Survey, hereinafter referred to as Monthly Manufacturing Survey with Territorial Approach - EMMET. 

In response, we have: 

  1. Archived the 14 predecessors (1990m1 to 2018m12) by renaming with an "_14" specifier, marking metadata as "discontinued", and segregating in the catalog. 
  2. Created one-for-one replacements, which start at 2018m1.
  3. Assigned standardized mnemonics.
  4. Extended the general index (NSA and SA) back to 1990.
  5. Added 27 new series.
  6. Refurbished the catalog.

Dataset properties:

  • Industry classification: CIIU Rev. 4 AC, aligned with UN ISIC Rev. 4
  • Measurements: Chained volume index relative to 2018 (Ch. Vol. Index 2018=100)
  • Seasonal adjustment: Seasonally adjusted (SA) or not (NSA)
  • Native frequency: Monthly
  • Start date: 2018m1

The active series reside in the historical catalog (Colombia » Industry » Industrial production index » 2018=100) and the predecessors under the associated "discontinued" node. They include, for example:

  • IPITT_14UM.ICOL = [DISCONTINUED] Industrial production index: General index, (Ch. Vol. Index 2014=100, NSA)
  • IPKTTUM.ICOL = Total industry [T_IND], (Ch. Vol. Index 2018=100, NSA)
  • IPK1511UM.ICOL = Tanning and retanning of hides; retanning and dyeing skins [1511], (Ch. Vol. Index 2018=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.
