Data Revision: Hong Kong - Real GDP(E) - Re-referenced to 2017
Tuesday, 28 May 2019 23:31 ET
By Jacky Cheung
May 2019 -- For the quarterly constant-price national accounts (expenditure approach to GDP) for Hong Kong, the source has advanced the currency reference year from 2016 to 2017 (36 quarterly series revised from 1973). This is a routine annual process.

In response, we have:

  1. Synchronized our extract: values and unit-descriptor metadata.
  2. Recomputed our SA supplements.

The framework is UN SNA 2008. Figures are millions of Hong Kong dollars at chained year-2017 prices (Mil. Ch. 2017 HKD) or corresponding indexes. There are two analytic variants: seasonally adjusted (SA) or not (NSA). Start dates vary, from 1973Q1 to 1990Q1.

The series reside in the historical catalog (Hong Kong » National Accounts » by Expenditure » Quarterly » Chained prices | Deflators | Growth rates) and include, for example:

  • NACEGDPUQ.IHKG    = Expenditure approach - Gross domestic product, (Mil. Ch. 2017 HKD, NSA)
  • NAIEDFGDPUQ.IHKG  = Implicit price deflator of GDP, (Index 2017=100, NSA)
  • NA%ERFCHNQAQ.IHKG = Growth in real private consumption expenditure, (% Q/Q, 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.
