Data Change: Estonia - QNA - Re-referenced to 2015
Friday, 13 Sep 2019 09:52 ET
By Sebastiano Mastrodonato
September 2019 -- For the quarterly national accounts of Estonia, concurrent with dissemination of results for the 2019Q2, the source has advanced the currency reference year from 2010 to 2015 (146 quarterly series 1995 to 2019, replaced by 146 from 1995).

On 30 August, the source wrote, in part (citation, pdf):

The reference year was shifted from 2010 to 2015 in the process of chain linking the GDP figures.

In response, we have:

  1. Archived the predecessors (reference year 2010, 1995Q1 to 2019Q1) by renaming with an "_10" specifier and by marking metadata as "discontinued".
  2. Created one-for-one replacements (ref 2015) with standardized mnemonics, which have an unchanged start date.
  3. Transplanted global concept aliases.
  4. Recalculated our supplements.
  5. Refurbished the catalog.

Active dataset properties:

  • Framework: ESA 2010
  • Activity classification: EMTAK 2008, an adaptation of NACE Rev. 2
  • Measurements:
    • Millions of euros at current prices (Mil. EUR)
    • Millions of euros at chained year-2015 prices (Mil. Ch. 2015 EUR)
    • Chained index (Ch. Index 2015=100)
  • Adjustment: Seasonally adjusted (SA) or not (NSA)
  • Native frequency: Quarterly
  • Start date: 1995Q1

The active series reside in the historical catalog (Estonia » National accounts » By expenditure | By value add » Quarterly) and the predecessors under the associated "discontinued" nodes. They include, for example:

  • NACEGCF_10UQ.IEST   = [DISCONTINUED] National Accounts: By expenditure - Gross capital formation, (Mil. Ch. 2010 EUR, NSA)
  • NACSGVACN_10AQ.IEST = [DISCONTINUED] By Production - Construction [F], (Mil. Ch. 2010 EUR, SA)
  • NAHSGDPUQ.IEST      = Production approach - GDP at market prices, (Mil. Ch. 2015 EUR, NSA)
  • NAHEIMGUQ.IEST      = Expenditure approach - Imports of goods [f.o.b.], (Mil. Ch. 2015 EUR, NSA)
  • NAKEGDPUQ.IEST      = Expenditure approach - GDP at market prices, (Ch. Index 2015=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.
