Estimates Revision: Egypt - GDP(E) - Re-referenced to 2017
Wednesday, 17 Jul 2019 08:23 ET
By Kelli Johnson
July 2019 -- We have revised our estimates of GDP for Egypt, by advancing the reference year from 2012 to 2017 (16 quarterly series revised from 1960).

Motivation: For national accounts in the World Development Indicators (WDI), the World Bank has advanced the currency reference year from 2012 to 2017.

Response: For consistency, Moody's Analytics has modified estimates in the same way. Properties are otherwise unchanged. 

What you will see: All periods revised, from 1960Q1, for constant price estimates. Current price series are unchanged.

The estimates reside in the historical catalog (Egypt » National Accounts » by Expenditure » Moody's Analytics Estimated) and include, for example:

  • RNACEGCFAQ.IEGY = Gross capital formation, (Mil. 2017 EGP, SAAR)
  • RNALECIAQ.IEGY  = Changes in inventories, (Mil. EGP, SAAR)
  • RPDIGDPAQ.IEGY  = Implicit price deflator - Gross domestic product, (Index 2017=100, SA)
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.
