Data Change: Cross-country - CPB World Trade Monitor [Jun 2019] - Geos
Friday, 06 Sep 2019 14:05 ET
By Megan McGee
September 2019 -- For the CPB "World Trade Monitor", concurrent with dissemination of results for June, the source has redefined the geo composite "Emerging Asia" and added two composites (four monthly series 2000 to 2019, replaced by 16 from 2000).

The changes are:

  • Geo composite "Emerging Asia" has been redefined to exclude China.
  • New geo composite, "Advanced economies".
  • New geo composite, "Emerging economies".

In response, we have:

  1. Discontinued series (2000m1 to 2019m5) for "Emerging Asia incl. China" (geo code IASIA).
  2. Created one-for-one replacements for "Emerging Asia excl. China" (new geo code IASIAXCHN).
  3. Created new series for China (ICHN).
  4. Created new series for "Advanced economies" (IADVC), composition: U.S., Japan, Euro Area, Other.
  5. Created new series for "Emerging economies" (IEMRG), composition: China, Emerging Asia excl. China, Eastern Europe/CIS, Latin America, Africa, Middle East.

Subset properties:

  • Measurements: Fixed-base volume index relative to 2010 (Vol. Index 2010=100) or value index (Index 2010=100)
  • Adjustment: Working day adjusted and seasonally adjusted (WDASA)
  • Native frequency: Monthly
  • Start date: 2000m1

The series reside in the historical catalog (Cross-Country Datasets » World Trade » World Trade Monitor (CPB)) and include, for example:

  • CPBTRJIMCM.IASIA     = [DISCONTINUED] Trade: Imports, (Vol. Index 2010=100, WDASA) - for Emerging Asia incl. China
  • CPBTRJIMCM.IASIAXCHN = Imports, (Vol. Index 2010=100, WDASA) - for Emerging Asia excl. China
  • CPBTRIIMCM.ICHN      = Imports, (Index 2010=100, WDASA) - for China
  • CPBTRJIMCM.IADVC     = Trade: Imports, (Vol. Index 2010=100, WDASA) - for Advanced economies
  • CPBTRIEXCM.IEMRG     = Trade: Exports, (Index 2010=100, WDASA) - for Emerging economies

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.
