Mnemonic Change: Italy subnational - Construction permits
Monday, 14 Oct 2019 06:25 ET
By Sebastiano Mastrodonato
October 2019 -- For detailed residential and non-residential construction permits for subnational areas in Italy, we have standardized mnemonics and metadata (5,400 annual series impacted).


  1. The old and new concept codes are aligned in the attached concordance (Excel file).
  2. We have standardized metadata as necessary.

If you have a legacy basket or other retrievals, existing references will now return "series not found" errors. You will need to edit the basket to use the amended mnemonics. The basket editor includes a "find and replace" tool which may be helpful.

Scope of change:

  • 40 concepts
  • 135 geos

The series reside in the historical catalog:

  • Italy » Real Estate » Non-residential » Permits
  • Italy » Real Estate » Residential » Permits » Annual

and include, for example:

  • HSVPMTRNBTUA.IITA_SSA    = Real estate: Permits - New residential buildings - Buildings - Total volume, (m³) - for province of Sud-Sardegna
  • HSQPMTNRRU45UUA.IITA_SSA  = Real estate: Permits - New residential buildings - Usable surface area - Less than or equal to 45, (#) - for province of Sud-Sardegna

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
