Data Revision: Taiwan - GVA SA - Method
Thursday, 21 Nov 2019 08:30 ET
By Kelli Johnson
November 2019 -- For Taiwan's quarterly gross value added by industry, Moody's Analytics produces seasonally adjusted counterparts. We have revised the all-industries total (one quarterly series, revised from 1981).

Motivation: Since March 2019, Moody's Analytics has produced seasonally adjusted counterparts for Taiwan's gross value added by industry. Our current-prices, all-industries total was not additive with its components, which is our preferred practice.

Response: To ensure additive integrity, we have changed our calculation for the series.

  • Before: The 19 components and the total are adjusted separately.
  • After: We seasonally adjust the 19 components, then calculate the all-industries total as the sum.

What you will see: Revisions to total, from 1981Q1. All other properties are unchanged. 

The estimate resides in the historical catalog:

  • Taiwan » National Accounts » by Value Added » Quarterly » Current prices » Seasonally adjusted by Moody's Analytics

and is:

  • NALSGVATAQ.ITWN = National accounts: Production approach - GVA - Total, (Mil. TWD, SAAR)

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.
