Data Extension: UAE subnational - Oil and non-oil GDP
Wednesday, 14 Nov 2018 08:48 ET
By Katie Cristofano
Summary
November 2018 -- For oil and non-oil GDP for Abu Dhabi, we have extended reported series by over two years (two quarterly series extended, 2013 to 2015).
Detail

Motivation: The Statistics Centre Abu Dhabi reports oil and non-oil GDP in seasonally adjusted terms, but only from 2016Q1 (see related article).

Response: Moody's Analytics has extended the history of the series to 2013Q4 using corresponding discontinued NSA series. 

Properties: Figures are millions of constant year-2007 UAE dirham (Mil. 2007 AED)  seasonally adjusted (SA). The series reside in the historical catalog (United Arab Emirates » National Accounts » By value add) and are: 

  • NACSGDPOILAQ.IARE_ABDH = National accounts: Production approach - GDP - Oil, (Mil. 2007 AED, SA)
  • NACSGDPNOLAQ.IARE_ABDH = Non-oil

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. 

Method:

  1. Independently seasonally adjust the corresponding discontinued NSA series (NACSGDPOILUQ.IARE_ABDH and NACSGDPNOLUQ.IARE_ABDH) using the U.S. Census Bureau's X-13 ARIMA program. 
  2. Extend source reported SA series backward to 2013Q4 using the growth rates of our seasonally adjusted counterparts.
