Data Note: Malaysia - QNA - Metadata
Wednesday, 18 Sep 2019 13:16 ET
By Annie Kao
Summary
September 2019 -- For the quarterly national accounts of Malaysia (predecessor subsets), we have corrected the source citations (81 quarterly series impacted).
Detail

Our national accounts extract erroneously conflated two different national sources, namely, the national central bank and national statistical agency. We have systematically altered the "source" metadata field:

  • Before: Bank Negara Malaysia
  • Before: Central Bank of Malaysia
  • After: Department of Statistics Malaysia

The changes are visible in all subsystems that display metadata. Schedules that use these series as triggers will have executed, since a series timestamp is reset by any change to its mnemonic, metadata or values. Otherwise, you will see the change when you next execute a basket.

The impacted series reside in the historical catalog (Malaysia » National Accounts » ... » Discontinued) and include, for example:

  • NACEIM87UQ.IMYS   = [DISCONTINUED] Gross Domestic Product: Import of Goods and Services, (Mil. 1987 MYR, NSA)
  • NACSSVC00UQ.IMYS  = [DISCONTINUED] Gross Domestic Product: Services, (Mil. 2000 MYR, NSA)
  • NALSAFF_05UQ.IMYS = [DISCONTINUED] Gross Domestic Product: Agriculture Forestry and Fishing, (Mil. MYR, NSA)
  • NACECIN_05AQ.IMYS = [DISCONTINUED] National accounts - Change in inventories, (Mil. 2005 MYR, SA)
