Data Change: Denmark - Price index for domestic supply - Rebased to 2015
Friday, 01 Mar 2019 14:12 ET
By Rosemary Affatato
Summary
February 2019 -- For the detailed price index for domestic supply for Denmark, concurrent with dissemination of results for January 2019, the source has advanced the base year from 2010 to 2015 (99 monthly series 1981 to 2018, replaced by 91 from 1981). We have synchronized our SA supplement.
Detail

The source wrote (citation » Key figures » Footnote):

In January 2019 the index base year was changed from 2010=100 to 2015=100. This applies to all historic and future indices. Therefore, the level of the historic indices have changed but the percentage changes remain the same, when you take into account the difference in rounding of indices.

In response, we have:

  1. Archived the predecessors (2010=100, January 1981 to December 2018) by renaming with an "_10" specifier, marking metadata as "discontinued", and segregating in the catalog.
  2. Created one-for-one replacements (2015=100) with an unchanged start date.
  3. Replaced our seasonally adjusted supplement to the headline series.
  4. Refurbished the catalog.

Reported dataset properties:

  • Scope: DB07 (local adaptation of NACE Rev. 2) sections A to C
  • Classification: WCO Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System (HS) and a subdivision thereof, the EU Combined Nomenclature (CN)
  • Measurement: Fixed-base value index relative to 2015 (Index 2015=100)
  • Adjustment: Not seasonally adjusted (NSA)
  • Native frequency: Monthly
  • Start date: January 1981

The series reside in the historical catalog (Denmark » Price » Price index for domestic supply) and include, for example:

  • PPIHTTUM.IDNK = [DISCONTINUED] Price Index: Domestic Supply - Total, (Index 2010=100, NSA)
  • PPIHTTUM.IDNK = Price Index: Domestic Supply - All commodities, (Index 2015=100, NSA)
  • PPIH62UM.IDNK = [DISCONTINUED] Articles of apparel and accessories; except knitwear, (Index 2010=100, NSA)
  • PPIH62UM.IDNK = Articles of apparel and accessories; except knitwear, (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.

Please be aware that

This dataset measures a combination of prices on imported commodities and on Danish goods sold in the domestic market, i.e., the prices of inputs to Danish producers. As such it is not a PPI per the Eurostat definition, which would measure the price of Danish goods sold in the domestic and export markets.
