Monday, 14 Oct 2019 13:06 ET

October 2019 -- For the national accounts expenditure approach for Peru, concurrent with dissemination of results for 2019Q2, the source has harmonized the reporting scale over the entire time series (11 quarterly series revised 1980 to 1989).

Previously, the interval 1980 to 1987 was expressed at unitary scale, 1988 to 1989 at thousands, and from 1990 in millions. The complete history is now reported at millions.

In response, we have:

  1. Synchronized our extract, 1980Q1 to 1989Q4.
    • 1980Q1 to 1987Q4: PEN » Mil. PEN
    • 1988Q1 to 1989Q4: Ths. PEN » Mil. PEN
  2. Removed "Currency Change in 1988 and 1990" from metadata.

The series reside in the historical catalog (Peru » National Accounts » by Expenditure » Central Reserve Bank of Peru » Current prices » Not seasonally adjusted) and include, for example:

  • NALEGDPCBUQ.IPER = National Accounts: Gross Domestic Product, (Mil. PEN, NSA)
  • NALEPCCBUQ.IPER  = Private Consumption, (Mil. PEN, NSA)
  • NALEEXCBUQ.IPER  = Exports (Mil. PEN, NSA)
