Data Change: Norway subnational - Sales turnover - Trøndelag

By Rosemary Affatato
April 2018 -- Wholesale and retail turnover statistics at the county level in Norway have been impacted by the merger of Sor-Trøndelag and Nord-Trøndelag in Norway have merged, their turnover statistics have been terminated (five bimonthly series 2008 to 2017, to be replaced by three from 2018).

The source attributes this to municipal changes effective 1 January 2018 (see related article). In response, we have archived series using the predecessor areas by marking their metadata as "discontinued."

The series reside in the historical catalog (Norway » Consumer » Sales turnover » Bimonthly divisions, SIC 2007, 45 to 47 | Quarterly) and include, for example: 

  • TNL45UM.INOR_NTR = Turnover: Wholesale and retail trade and repair of motor vehicles and motorcycles [45], (Mil. NOK, NSA) - for 16 North Trøndelag
  • TNL47UQ.INOR_STR = Retail trade; except of motor vehicles and motorcycles [47], (Mil. NOK, NSA) - for 17 South Trøndelag

We anticipate that the replacement county (50 Trøndelag) will be reported upon dissemination of 2018Q1 and January 2018 data on 21 June.

We compute supplements at the "group of counties" (NUTS 1-analogous) geo level, in NSA and SAAR terms. We have necessarily terminated the area that is the sum of the two terminated counties. For example:

  • TNL47UQ.INOR_TR = Retail trade; except of motor vehicles and motorcycles [47], (Mil. NOK, NSA) - for Trøndelag [group of counties]
  • TNL47AQ.INOR_TR = (Mil. NOK, SAAR)

Because catalog locations are subject to change, the upper-right search box on DataBuffet.com provide a "find in catalog" mode that accepts a mnemonic.

Please be aware that

  • Our extract contains wholesale and retail trade (sections 45, 46 and 47) at a bimonthly frequency, and retail trade only (section 47) at a quarterly frequency, which is calculated by Moody's Analytics using the bimonthly data.
  • Although the frequency-specifier on the concept codes is "M", the bimonthly data have six values per year; alternating periods are "ND".
