New Data: Taiwan - GVA - SA
Tuesday, 05 Mar 2019 09:55 ET
By Kelli Johnson
March 2019 -- Moody's Analytics now computes seasonally adjusted counterparts for nominal and real gross value added by industry for Taiwan (40 new quarterly series from 1981).

Motivation: Our national source, Directorate General of Budget, Accounting and Statistics (DGBAS), reports GVA by industry for the nation, quarterly, but only in not seasonally adjusted terms (NSA).

Response: We have created seasonally adjusted at an annualized rate (SAAR) counterparts.

Properties: Expect our SAAR series to be revised with each update to the NSA series. Supplemental series of this kind are identified by a secondary source citation of "Moody's Analytics Adjusted".

  • Measurement: Millions of current (Mil. TWD) or chained year-2011 Taiwan new dollars (Mil. Ch. 2011 TWD)
  • Adjustment: Seasonally adjusted at an annualized rate (SAAR)
  • Geo coverage: ITWN only
  • Frequency: Quarterly
  • Start date: 1981Q1
  • Industry classification: ROC SIC Rev. 9
  • Industry coverage: 19 industries (excludes industry T and U)

The estimates reside in the historical catalog (Taiwan » National Accounts » by Value Added » Quarterly » ... » Seasonally adjusted by Moody's Analytics) and include, for example:

  • NACSGVATAQ.ITWN  = National Accounts: Production approach - GVA - Total, (Mil. Ch. 2011 TWD, SAAR)
  • NACSGVAFIAQ.ITWN = Finance and insurance [K], (Mil. Ch. 2011 TWD, SAAR)
  • NALSGVACNAQ.ITWN = Construction [F], (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.
