Data Revision: Poland - BOP
Wednesday, 30 Oct 2019 07:54 ET
By Kelli Johnson
Summary
October 2019 -- For Poland's current account balance, we have re-extended the source's reported values and revised our seasonally adjusted supplement (two quarterly series revised, from 2000).
Detail

Motivation: The source, the National Bank of Poland, reports current account balance with a start date of January 2004. Previously, we extended this series from January 2000 to December 2010. 

Response:

  1. Re-extended the reported balance of payments series prior to January 2004 using its predecessor
  2. Recomputed our seasonally adjusted supplement

What you will see:

  1. Current account balance NSA is revised over January 2000 to December 2003
  2. Current account balance SA is revised over all periods
  3. Updated metadata to reflect the changes
The series reside in the historical catalog (Poland » Trade » Balance of Payments » BPM6), and are: 
  • BPNCABUM.IPOL = Balance of Payments: Current Account - Balance, (Mil. USD, NSA)
  • BPNCABAM.IPOL = Balance, (Mil. USD, SA)
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. 

Method: 

  1. Extend the reported NSA current account balance backwards to January 2000 using the growth rates of its predecessor
  2. Adjust the extended NSA series using the U.S. Census Bureau's X-13 ARIMA program.
