Data Revision: Luxembourg - RSI [Jun 2019]
Wednesday, 05 Jun 2019 17:14 ET
By Kylie Starliper
Summary
June 2019 -- For the detailed "turnover index in retail trade, except motor vehicles and motorcycles" for Luxembourg, concurrent with dissemination of results for March, values have been revised back to 2017 (26 monthly series impacted).
Detail

In a direct communication, the source explained:

The revision of the turnover index in retail trade, except of motor vehicles and motorcycles are due to routine revisions. There has not been a change in methodology for the turnover index in retail trade, except of motor vehicles and motorcycles.

In response, we have:

  1. Synchronized the 24 historical verbatim series (2017M1 to 2019M2).
  2. Updated our two seasonally adjusted supplements.
  3. Not appended a notation to the series metadata, because this is not a definitional break.

The series reside in the historical catalog (Luxembourg » Consumer » Retail sales index » 2015=100) and include, for example:

  • WRI472UM.ILUX = Retail sale of food, beverages and tobacco in specialised stores [47.2], (Index 2015=100, NSA)
  • WRI47UM.ILUX  = Retail trade, except of motor vehicles and motorcycles [47], (Index 2015=100, NSA)
  • WRI47AM.ILUX  = Retail trade, except of motor vehicles and motorcycles [47], (Index 2015=100, 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.
