Data Change: Denmark - RSI - Reporting aggregates
Wednesday, 02 Oct 2019 03:05 ET
By Rushil Walia
September 2019 -- For the detailed "Retail Trade Index" for Denmark, the source suppressed 18 individual branches, and has replaced them with aggregates (18 monthly series 2000 to 2018, replaced by 10 from 2000). We have also added two series.

In a direct communication, the source explained:

It is true that quite a few of the categories have the 2000-2018 tag [which] means that they have been merged with other categories. So, for example [...] 472100, 472600 and 472900 have been merged into one category. We have had to do this with a number of categories because some of them have become too slim (not enough companies within them).

In response, we have:

  1. Archived the suppressed branches (2000m1 to 2018m12) by marking them as "discontinued" in their metadata and catalog location.
  2. Created their replacement aggregates, which start at 2000m1.
  3. Created two series that we did not previously include, so that our extract is complete.

Properties of the dataset are unchanged.

The series reside in the historical catalog (Denmark » Consumer » Retail sales index » 2015=100 » Detailed sectors).
