Data Change: Hong Kong - IPI - Rebased to 2015
Sunday, 20 Oct 2019 23:55 ET
By Jacky Cheung
October 2019 -- For the detailed industrial production index for Hong Kong, concurrent with dissemination of results for 2019Q2, the source has advanced the base year from 2008 to 2015 (seven monthly series 1982 to 2019, replaced by eight from 1982).

In response, we have:

  1. Archived the predecessor indexes (2008=100, 1982Q1 to 2019Q1) by renaming with an "_08" specifier, marking metadata as "discontinued", and segregating in the catalog.
  2. Created as-reported replacements (2015=100), which have standardized mnemonics.
  3. Did not replace the quarterly percent change.
  4. Transplanted the global concept alias IP.IHKG.
  5. Extended the general indexes (NSA and SA).

Active subset properties:

  • Classification: Aggregates over HSIC V2.0
  • Measurement: Fixed-base index relative to 2015 (Index 2015=100)
  • Adjustments: 
    • Not seasonally adjusted (NSA)
    • Seasonally adjusted (SA)
  • Native frequency: Quarterly
  • Start dates:
    • Reported from 2015Q1
    • Extended to 1982Q1

The series reside in the historical catalog (Hong Kong » Industry » Industrial production index » Quarterly).

Please be aware that

The reported industry-aggregates in the 2008 and 2015 subsets are not identical.
