Discontinued Data: Australia - PPI by stage of production
Monday, 10 Feb 2020 19:13 ET
By Annie Kao
February 2020 -- For the detailed producer price index for Australia, the source has terminated stage of production detail (eight quarterly series 1998 to 2019, discontinued).

In a direct communication, the source explained (citation):

The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) has undertaken a review of the Producer Price Index (PPI) Stage of Production (SOP) outputs. As a result, the ABS is proposing discontinuing the SOP time series from December 2019 quarter.

In response, we have:

  1. Archived the series by marking their metadata as discontinued.
  2. Segregated in the catalog.

The series run from 1998Q3 to 2019Q3. They reside in the historical catalog:

  • Australia » Prices » Producer price index » Discontinued » By stage of production

and include, for example:

  • PPICGDUQ.IAUS = [DISCONTINUED] Producer Price Index: Domestic Consumer Goods, (2011-12=100, NSA)

There is one remaining active PPI series in Data Buffet's extract:

  • PPITXEXUQ.IAUS = Producer Price Index: Total (excluding exports), (2011-12=100, NSA)
