Data Change: France subnational - Payroll employment - Redefined
Thursday, 13 Dec 2018 10:11 ET
By Jason Flynn
Summary
October 2018 -- For payroll employment by industry for subnational areas in France, concurrent with dissemination of results for 2018Q2, the source has redefined their methodology and reporting geos (42 quarterly series 2001 to 2017, replaced by 108 from 2001).
Detail

The source's changes are:

  1. Redefined the "Employment: All sectors" aggregate.
    • Before: Industry, construction, market services
    • Now: The above, plus agriculture, non-market goods/services
    • LWQE2TAQ = LWQE2IDAQ + LWQE2CNAQ + LWQE2MMSXAQ + LWQE2AFAQ + LWQE2PHAQ
  2. Added the national geo aggregate "France excluding Mayotte", defined as all domestic and four of five overseas departments (DOMs) excluding Mayotte.

In response, we have:

  1. Archived "Employment: All activities" and series using NUTS 2016 geo codes (2001Q4 to 2017Q4) by renaming with the specifier "_17", marking metadata as discontinued, and segregating in the catalog.
  2. Created one-for-one replacements with INSEE 2018 geo codes.
  3. Added two new concept codes:
    • LWQE2AFAQ = Labor: Employment - Agriculture (Ths. #, SA)
    • LWQE2PHAQ = Labor: Employment - Non-market services (Ths. #, SA)
  4. Added four overseas departments:
    • IFRA_GU = Guadeloupe
    • IFRA_MQ = Martinique 
    • IFRA_FG = French Guyana
    • IFRA_RE = Reunion
  5. Added the "France excluding Mayotte DOM" national aggregate geo:
    • IFRA_XMY = France excl. Mayotte
  6. Refurbished the metadata of LWQE2TAQ.

Active dataset properties:

  • Source table: Employment estimates [NAF. Rev. 2] 
  • Measurement: Thousands of persons (Ths. #) 
  • Adjustment: Seasonally adjusted (SA)
  • Geo coverage:
    • France excl. Mayotte
    • All 18 INSEE (2018) regions
  • Native frequency: Quarterly
  • Start dates: 2001Q4 or 2010Q4

The series reside in the historical catalog (France » Labor and Wages » Payroll Employment by Industry) which is organized by definitional vintage. They include, for example:

  • LWQE2T_17AQ.IFRA_ACAL = [DISCONTINUED] Employment: All Activities (Ths. #, SA) - for NUTS (2016) 1 Alsace-Champagne-Ardenne-Lorraine
  • LWQE2TAQ.IFRA_AC      = Employment - All sectors, (Ths. #, SA) - for INSEE (2018) region Alsace-Champagne-Ardenne-Lorraine
  • LWQE2AFAQ.IFRA_XMY    = Employment - Agriculture - for France excl. Mayotte
