Data Change: Turkey - GDP(E) and GDP(O) - Re-referenced to 2009
Tuesday, 14 Mar 2017 10:19 ET
By Jay Lynch
February 2017 -- The source has advanced the reference year of its national accounts from 1998 to 2009 (153 quarterly series 1987-2016, replaced by 127 from 1987). To supplement the reported national accounts, Moody's Analytics has computed identities and SAAR counterparts (52 new quarterly series from 1987).

In response, we have archived the predecessors (reference year 1998, 1998Q1 to 2016Q2) by renaming with an "_98" specifier, by marking the metadata as "discontinued," and by segregating the catalog. Replacements (reference year 2009) are reported from 1998Q1. Figures are thousands of nominal Turkish lira (Ths. TRY) or chained year-2009 lira (Ths. Ch. 2009 TRY). Reported series are not seasonally adjusted (NSA).

The series reside in the historical catalog (Turkey » National Accounts » by Expenditure | by Value Added » Quarterly » Constant prices | Current prices) and include, for example:

  • NALEEX_98UQ.ITUR = [DISCONTINUED] Exports of goods and services, (Ths. TRY, NSA)
  • NALEEXUQ.ITUR    = Exports of goods and services, (Ths. TRY, NSA)
  • NACECIUQ.ITUR    = Change in stocks, (Ths. Ch. 2009 TRY, NSA)
  • NALEFCHNAQ.ITUR  = Final consumption expenditure of resident households and consumption of NPISH, (Ths. TRY, SAAR)
  • NACSGVAMFUQ.ITUR = Gross value added - Manufacturing, (Ths. Ch. 2009 TRY, 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.

Please be aware that:

  • Moody's Analytics has augmented the reported dataset in three ways. All such series carry a secondary source citation. They start at either 1987Q1 or 1998Q1. Units are otherwise the same as the reported data.
  • Extended select active series back to 1987Q1 by using their predecessors (reference 1998).
  • Computed identities, such as change in stocks (gross capital formation less GFCF).
  • Produced counterparts at seasonally adjusted annual rates (SAAR).
