Data Change: France - Current income - Source
Thursday, 16 Mar 2017 14:10 ET

December 2016 -- Concurrent with dissemination of the results for 2016Q3, the source has terminated compensation of employees; in response, Moody's Analytics will compute a substitute (one monthly series 1994-2016, replaced).

In response, we have archived the predecessor series (1949Q1 to 2016Q2) by renaming with an "_16" specifier, by marking description metadata as "discontinued," and by segregating in the catalog. We are able to compute a substitute as an identity, namely, the sum of the three components that continue to be reported. The start date for the substitute is unchanged. Our involvement is denoted by a secondary source citation of "Moody's Analytics Calculated."

The series reside in the historical catalog (France » National Accounts » by Income » Quarterly » Nominal) and are:

  • NALHGICCMP_16CQ.IFRA = [DISCONTINUED] Compensation of Employees: Total, (Bil. EUR, WDASA)
  • NALICMPCQ.IFRA       = National accounts: By income - Compensation of employees, (Mil. EUR, WDASA)

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:

  • At the same time, the source has changed its reporting scale from billions to millions (see related article).
  • We have taken the opportunity to standardize the mnemonics and metadata.
