Mnemonic Change: Vietnam - GVA by industry
Friday, 19 Apr 2019 08:25 ET
By Jaclyn Zylka
Summary
March 2019 -- For gross value added by industry for Vietnam, we have standardized existing mnemonics and metadata (54 quarterly series impacted).
Detail

Changes to mnemonics:

  • For the top line series, changed from GVA to GDP.
  • For select branches, standardized the industry specifier.
  • Inserted the Y specifier to denote cumulation (YTD).

Changes to metadata on all series:

  • Description - Standard syntax for GDP(O).
  • Source - Appended notation re: VSIC classification.

If you have a legacy basket or other retrievals, existing references will now return "series not found" errors. You will need to edit the basket to use the amended mnemonics; the basket editor includes a "find and replace" tool.

The series reside in the historical catalog (Vietnam » National Accounts » by Value Added » Quarterly) and include, for example, the following (old » new). A full concordance is attached.

  • NACSGVATUQ.IVNM  » NACSGDPYUQ.IVNM   = National accounts: Production approach - GDP [total], (Bil. 2010 VND YTD, NSA)
  • NALSGVA35UQ.IVNM » NALSGVAEGYUQ.IVNM = Electricity, (Bil. VND YTD, NSA)

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.
