Data Change: Sweden - NA compensation - Benchmark 2019
Friday, 15 Nov 2019 03:08 ET
By Rushil Walia
November 2019 -- For the quarterly national accounts of Sweden, concurrent with dissemination of results for 2019Q2, the source has conducted its five-year benchmark revision. This impacts employee compensation by industry (222 series 1993 to 2019, replaced by 212 from 1993).

On 13 June, the source wrote (citation (pdf)):

The National Accounts (NA) carries out a benchmark revision every five years concerning annual input sources, methods and calculation models in a number of areas [...] On 13 September updated time series will be disseminated for the years 1993-2017 and for the quarters 1993q1-2019q2. Time series for the period before 1993 will be disseminated later.

In response, we have:

  1. Archived the predecessors (pre-benchmark, 1993Q1 to 2019Q1) by renaming with an "_19" specifier, marking as “discontinued” in their description metadata, and segregating in the catalog.
  2. Created one-to-one replacement series (post-benchmark).
  3. Synchronized our SA supplements (two series).

Properties are unchanged (see background in Mnemonic 411).

The source has discontinued the following categories but still reports the aggregate [J58-J63]:

  • Publishing; motion picture; video; television and broadcasting [J58-J60]
  • Telecommunications [J61]
  • Computer programming; consultancy and related activities and information services [J62-J63]

The series reside in the historical catalog:

  • Sweden » National Accounts » Branch accounts » Labor costs » Quarterly
  • Sweden » National Accounts » Branch accounts » Labor costs » Discontinued » Pre-benchmark 2019
