Data Change: Singapore - PPI - Rebased to 2018
Monday, 15 Apr 2019 00:57 ET
By Jacky Cheung
April 2018 -- For the "Singapore Manufactured Products Price Index (SMPPI)", concurrent with dissemination of results for February, the index base period has been advanced by the source from 2012 to 2018 (one monthly series 1974 to 2019, replaced from 1974).

The source wrote (citation):

The Singapore Department of Statistics (DOS) has completed the rebasing of the Singapore Manufactured Products [Price Index] from base year 2012 to 2018. The rebasing exercise is conducted periodically to ensure that the ‘basket’ of commodities remain relevant to changing production and domestic supply patterns.

In response, we have:

  1. Archived the predecessor (2012, 1974m1 to 2019m1) by renaming with an "_12" specifier, marking metadata as discontinued, and segregating in the catalog.
  2. Created the one-for-one replacement (2018) with an unchanged start date.

The active series resides in the historical catalog (Singapore » Price » Singapore Manufactured Products Price Index (SMPPI)) and the predecessor under the associated "discontinued" node. They are:

  • PPIOUTT_12UM.ISGP = [DISCONTINUED] Singapore Manufactured Products Price Index: Overall Items, (Index 2012=100, NSA)
  • PPIOUTTUM.ISGP    = Singapore Manufactured Products Price Index: Overall Items, (Index 2018=100, NSA)

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.
