Data Change: Italy - QNA - Re-referenced to 2015
Tuesday, 07 Jan 2020 11:55 ET
By Megan McGee, Victoria Donu
Summary
December 2019 -- For the quarterly national accounts of Italy, concurrent with dissemination of results for 2019Q3, the source has advanced the currency reference year from 2010 to 2015; this impacts GDP(E), GDP(O), and branch accounts (691 quarterly series 1980 to 2019, replaced by 670 from as early as 1980).
Detail

In response, we have:

  1. Archived the predecessor series (currency reference year 2010 where applicable, as early as 1980Q1 to as late as 2019Q2) by renaming with an "_10" specifier and marking as "discontinued, and segregating in the catalog.
  2. Created one-for-one replacements (currency reference year 2015), where possible.
  3. Replaced the corresponding current-priced series, because they may be subject to revisions unrelated to the reference year.
  4. Replaced count series (employment, jobs, hours), for the same reason.
  5. Re-extended our augmented series (select components of GDP(E)).
  6. Transplanted global concept aliases.
  7. Refurbished the catalog.

Notable properties (for full list, see Mnemonic 411):

  • Currency reference year: Changed from 2010 to 2015
  • Start date: Unchanged
