Data Change: Mexico subnational - HPI - Rebased to 2017
Thursday, 18 Jul 2019 16:11 ET
By Skylar Bowman
July 2019 -- For the house price index for Mexico, concurrent with dissemination of results for 2019Q1, the source has advanced the index base year from 2012 to 2017 (33 quarterly series 2005 to 2018, replaced by 33 from 2005). We have also synchronized our supplements.

In response, we have:

  1. Archived the predecessors (2012=100, 2005Q1 to 2018Q4) by renaming with an "_12" specifier, by marking the metadata as "discontinued", and by segregating in the catalog.
  2. Created one-for-one replacements (2017=100) with an unchanged start date.
  3. Extended the national index to 1969Q1.
  4. Replaced our SA supplements in the same way.

Active dataset properties:

  • Source title: Índice SHF de Precios de la Vivienda en México
  • Measurement: Fixed-base index relative to 2017 (Index 2017=100)
  • Adjustment: Not seasonally adjusted (NSA)
  • Geo coverage: Country, all 32 states
  • Native frequency: Quarterly
  • Start date: 2005Q1

The reported series reside in the historical catalog (Mexico » Real Estate » Residential » Price index » Quarterly) and include, for example:

  • HPIHPG_12UQ.IMEX_DF = [DISCONTINUED] Real estate: House price index, (Index 2012=100, NSA) - for Federal District
  • HPIHPGUQ.IMEX_DF    = Ibid, (Index 2017=100, NSA)

Our supplements include:

  • HPIHPG_12AQ.IMEX    = [DISCONTINUED] House price index, (Index 2012=100, SA)
  • HPIHPGAQ.IMEX       = General house price, (Index 2017=100, SA)

Because catalog locations are subject to change, the upper-right search box on DataBuffet.com provides a "find in catalog" that accepts a mnemonic.
