Data Change: Spain - QNA - Re-referenced to 2015
Friday, 10 Jan 2020 10:25 ET
By Victoria Donu
January 2020 -- For the quarterly national accounts of Spain, concurrent with dissemination of results for 2019Q2, the source advanced the currency reference year from 2010 to 2015 (358 quarterly series 1995 to 2019, replaced by 358 from 1995).

On 30 September, the source wrote (citation):

The results released today from the first quarter of 1995 correspond to the results of the statistical review of the series of the National Accounts (2019 Statistical Review).

In response, we have:

  1. Archived the predecessor chained-volume series (reference year 2010) by renaming with an "_10" specifier and marking as "discontinued."
  2. Created one-for-one replacements (ref 2015) with standardized metadata.
  3. Replaced the parallel current-price series, which may be subject to other revisions as part of this five-year benchmark.
  4. Recreated our chained-price supplements.
  5. Replaced the employment series, which may be subject to benchmark revisions.
  6. Transplanted our global concept aliases.

Notable properties:

  • Currency reference year: Changed from 2010 to 2015
  • Start date: Unchanged

The series reside in the historical catalog:

  • Spain » National accounts » Branch accounts » Employment by industry
  • ... » by Expenditure » Quarterly » Chained prices | Current prices | Volume indexes
  • ... » by Income » Quarterly » Primary distribution of income account
  • ... » by Value Add » Quarterly » Chained prices | Current prices | Volume indexes

and include, for example:

  • NAQFJTUQ.IESP    = Employment by industry, full time equivalent jobs - All activities, (Ths. #, NSA)
  • NAJSGDPUQ.IESP   = By expenditure - Gross domestic product at market prices, (Ch. Vol. Index 2015=100, NSA)
  • NALINTPUQ.IESP   = By income - Net taxes on production and imports, (Mil. EUR, NSA)
  • NAJSGVACNCQ.IESP = Gross value added - Construction, (Ch. Vol. Index 2015=100, CDASA)

The predecessors reside in the associated "discontinued" folders and include for example:

  • NALEIM_10CQ.IESP  = [DISCONTINUED] Imports of goods and services, (Mil. EUR, CDASA)
  • NAQEMRE_10UQ.IESP = [DISCONTINUED] Employed - Real estate activities, (Ths. #, NSA)
