Data Revision: Malta - PPI
Monday, 11 Feb 2019 09:10 ET
By Katie Cristofano
Summary
February 2019 -- For the producer price index for Malta, we have re-extended the source's reported values and revised our seasonally adjusted supplement (two monthly series revised, 2000 to 2017).
Detail

Motivation: In March the source, the National Statistics Office (NSO) of Malta, rebased the detailed producer price index from 2010 to 2015, but truncated history by 17 years. The history for 2014 to 2016 was released month-by-month (i.e., January for 2014, 2015 and 2016; then February; etc.). Until that three-year period was officially infilled, we provisionally extended the all-items index prior to 2017.

Response

  1. Re-extended the reported all-items PPI prior to January 2014 using its predecessor.
  2. Recomputed our seasonally adjusted supplement. 

What you will see

  1. All-items PPI NSA is revised over January 2000 to December 2013.
  2. All-items PPI SA is revised January 2000 to December 2018.

The series reside in the historical catalog (Malta » Price » Producer price index » 2015=100) and are: 

  • PPITTUM.IMLT = Producer price index: All markets - All items, (Index 2015=100, NSA)
  • PPITTAM.IMLT = (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.
