Data Change: Austria - WPI - Rebased to 2015
Thursday, 18 May 2017 09:25 ET
By Katie Cristofano
May 2017 -- For the detailed wholesale price index for Austria, the source has advanced the base year from 2010 to 2015 (62 monthly series 2010-2015, replaced from 2016).

In response, we have archived the predecessors (2010=100, March 2010 to December 2015) by renaming with an "_10" specifier, by marking metadata as "discontinued" and by segregating in the catalog. The replacements (2015=100) start at January 2016. Figures are not seasonally adjusted (NSA). The classification is ÖNACE-2008, the localization of NACE Rev. 2.

The series reside in the historical catalog (Austria » Prices » Wholesale Price Index » 2015=100) and the associated discontinued node. They include, for example:

  • WPITT_10UM.IAUT  = [DISCONTINUED] Total, (2010=100, NSA)
  • WPITTUM.IAUT     = Total, (2015=100, NSA)
  • WPI464412UM.IAUT = Cleaning materials, (2015=100, 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.

About the dataset:

  • The native term is "Index der Großhandelspreise (GHPI)."
  • The scope consists of these branches in ÖNACE-2008:
    • 45.11-1 Wholesale of motor vehicles
    • 45.31-0 Wholesale of motor vehicle parts and accessories
    • 46 Wholesale trade, except of motor vehicles and motorcycles
