Data Change: Tanzania - GDP(E) - Re-referenced to 2015
Thursday, 18 Jul 2019 10:42 ET
By Rushil Walia
July 2019 -- For the detailed expenditure approach to gross domestic product (use of GDP), in nominal and real terms, for the East African country of Tanzania, concurrent with dissemination of results for 2019, the source has advanced the currency reference year from 2007 to 2015 (30 annual series 2005 to 2017, replaced by 32 from 2012).

In response, we have:

  1. Archived the predecessors (reference 2007, 2005 to 2017) by renaming with an "_07" specifier, marking metadata as "discontinued", and segregating in the catalog. 
  2. Created one-for-one replacements (ref 2015).
  3. Added "changes in valuables" in both nominal and real terms.
  4. Refurbished the catalog.

Dataset properties:

  • Framework: UN SNA 2008
  • Measurements: 
    • Millions of Tanzanian shillings at current prices (Mil. TZS) 
    • Millions of constant year-2015 Tanzanian shillings (Mil. 2015 TZS)
  • Adjustment: Not applicable
  • Native frequency: Annual
  • Start date: 2012

The series reside in the historical catalog (Tanzania » National accounts » By expenditure) and include, for example:

  • NALEGDP_07UA.ITZA  = [DISCONTINUED] National accounts: Expenditure approach - GDP at market prices, (Mil. TZS)
  • NACEEXS_07UA.ITZA  = [DISCONTINUED] Export - Services, (Mil. 2007 TZS)
  • NACEEXSUA.ITZA     = Export - Services, (Mil. 2015 TZS)
  • NALEFCGGUA.ITZA    = Final consumption - Government, (Mil. TZS)

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.
