Data Change: Greece - RSI - Rebased to 2015
Wednesday, 23 Jan 2019 04:08 ET
By Victoria Donu
Summary
January 2019 -- For the detailed retail sales index for Greece, concurrent with dissemination of results for September 2018, the source has advanced the base period from 2010 to 2015 (23 monthly series 2000 to 2018, replaced by 27 from 2000).
Detail

In response, we have:

  1. Archived the predecessor dataset (2010=100, January 2000 to August 2018) by renaming with an "_10" specifier, marking metadata as "discontinued", and segregating in the catalog.
  2. Created replacements (2015=100) with an unchanged start date.
  3. Replaced our seasonally adjusted supplements with as-reported series.
  4. Extended the as-reported SA series over the interval January 1995 to December 1999.
  5. Refurbished the catalog.

Dataset properties:

  • Classification: NACE Rev. 2
  • Measurement: Fixed-base value index (Index 2015=100) or volume index relative to 2015 (Vol. Index 2015=100)
  • Adjustment: Seasonally adjusted (SA) or not (NSA)
  • Native frequency: Monthly
  • Start date: January 2000

The series reside in the historical catalog (Greece » Consumer » Retail sales index) and include, for example:

  • WRIRATT_10UM.IGRC = [DISCONTINUED] Value Index: Total, (2010=100, NSA)
  • WRI47UM.IGRC      = Value Index: Total, (2015=100, NSA)
  • WRIRTXCFUM.IGRC   = Volume Index: Clothing and footwear, (2015=100, NSA)
  • WRJ47AM.IGRC      = Volume Index: Total, (2015=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.
