Data Change: Sweden - NA employment - Benchmark 2019
Friday, 08 Nov 2019 04:12 ET
By Rushil Walia
October 2019 -- For employment by industry for Sweden, reported as part of the annual national accounts, concurrent with dissemination of results for 2017, the source has performed the five-year benchmark revision (65 annual series 1980 to 2016, replaced from 1993).

On 13 June, the source wrote (citation (pdf)):

The National Accounts (NA) carries out a benchmark revision every five years concerning annual input sources, methods and calculation models in a number of areas [...] On 13 September updated time series will be disseminated for the years 1993-2017 and for the quarters 1993q1-2019q2. Time series for the period before 1993 will be disseminated later.

In response, we have:

  1. Archived the predecessors (pre-benchmark, 1980 to 2016) by renaming with an "_19" specifier, marking as “discontinued” in description metadata, and segregating in the catalog.
  2. Where possible, created one-to-one replacement series (post-benchmark, from 1993).

Properties that have changed:

  • Start date: From 1980 to 1993

Note that two activity-aggregates have been regrouped:

  • Before:
    • E36-E37 water supply and sewage
    • E38-39 waste collection, materials recovery and other waste management services
  • After:
    • E36 water collection, treatment and supply
    • E37-E39 sewerage, waste collection, materials recovery and other waste management services

The series reside in the historical catalog:

  • Sweden » National Accounts » Branch accounts » Employment » Annual, detail
  • Sweden » National Accounts » Branch accounts » Employment » Discontinued » Pre-Benchmark 2019
