Summary
December 2019 -- For the "Japan Residential Property Price Index" and "Japan Commercial Property Price Index", we have declared new geo codes to properly describe the city-plus-suburbs scope of the indicators (36 monthly and quarterly series impacted).
Detail

In a recent review of the methodology of this MLIT dataset, we determined that it uses a more inclusive urban definition than our standard Moody's Analytics global metro areas. In response, we have declared new geo codes, and assigned them to the series.

Geo codes (3) (old » new):

  • IJPN_MTOK » IJPN_MTXI = Tokyo including suburbs / Tokyo Metropolitan Area excl. Ibaraki Prefecture
  • IJPN_MOSA » IJPN_MKOK = Osaka including suburbs / Kyoto-Osaka-Kobe
  • IJPN_MNAG » IJPN_MCHU = Nagoya including suburbs / Chukyo

Concept codes (20):

  • HPIUM
  • HPICNOUM
  • HPIHOUUM
  • HPILNDUM
  • HPQUM
  • HPQCNOUM
  • HPQHOUUM
  • HPQLNDUM
  • CRIAPTUQ
  • CRICOMUQ
  • CRIINDUQ
  • CRILNDUQ
  • CRIOFFUQ
  • CRIRETUQ
  • CRQAPTUQ
  • CRQCOMUQ
  • CRQINDUQ
  • CRQLNDUQ
  • CRQOFFUQ
  • CRQRETUQ

Do all concept-geo pairs exist: No

The series reside in the historical catalog:

Subsequent use of the prior mnemonics will elicit the "series not found" error. You will need to update legacy baskets and other retrievals. The basket editor provides a "find/replace" tool.
