Data Change: Canada - RSI - Rebased to 2012
Thursday, 18 May 2017 08:00 ET
By Eric Pagan
Summary
May 2017 -- For retail trade (at chained prices and the corresponding index), the source has advanced the base year from 2007 to 2012 (two monthly series 2004-2017, replaced from 2004).
Detail

In response, we have archived the predecessors (2007=100, January 2004 to January 2017) by marking their metadata and catalog entries as "discontinued." The replacements (2012=100) have an unchanged start date. Figures are seasonally adjusted (SA).

The series reside in the historical catalog (Canada » Consumer » Retail trade » Sales summary) and are:

  • WRCRATRDRTEAM.ICAN = [DISCONTINUED] Sales - Chained dollars, (Mil. Ch. 2007 CAD)
  • WRIRATRDRTEAM.ICAN = [DISCONTINUED] Sales - Price index, (2007=100)
  • WRCRTAM.ICAN       = Sales - Chained dollars, (Mil. Ch. 2012 CAD)
  • WRIRTAM.ICAN       = Sales - Price index, (2012=100)

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.

Please be aware that:

  • Because the predecessors have non-standard mnemonics, we have not renamed them.
