Data Change: France - Current income - Rescaled
Thursday, 16 Mar 2017 13:30 ET
By Megan McGee
March 2017 -- The source has changed its reporting scale from billions to millions (four monthly series 1949-2016, replaced). Also, we have taken the time to standardize the mnemonics and metadata.

In response, we have archived the predecessors (Bil. EUR, 1949Q1 to 2016Q2) by renaming with an "_16" specifier, by marking the metadata as "discontinued," and by segregating in the catalog. The one-for-one replacement series have an unchanged start date and adjustment (WDASA).

The series reside in the historical catalog (France » National Accounts » by Income » Quarterly » Nominal) and include, for example:

  • NALHGICGWG_16CQ.IFRA = [DISCONTINUED] Compensation of Employees: Gross Wages and Salaries
  • NALIWGSCQ.IFRA       = National accounts: By income - Gross wages and salaries [D11], (Mil. EUR, WDASA)
  • NALICSRACQ.IFRA      = National accounts: By income - Employers' actual social contributions [D121], (Mil. EUR, WDASA)

The replacements are (old » new):

  • NALHGICCMP_16CQ.IFRA » NALICMPCQ.IFRA = Compensation of employees
  • NALHGICGWG_16CQ.IFRA » NALIWGSCQ.IFRA = Gross wages and salaries
  • NALHGICSCA_16CQ.IFRA » NALISRACQ.IFRA = Employers' actual social contributions
  • NALHGICSCI_16CQ.IFRA » NALISRICQ.IFRA = Employers' imputed social contributions

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.
