(STA05)DBNotes/Jul

Changes to series codes and titles for Real indicators series (1028 series affected)

The series codes and titles for Real Indicators series (e.g. Production, Retail trade, Car registrations, Dwelling permits etc.) have been changed for this and future editions of all MEI electronic products.  These changes result from a major review of data collection and presentation for this part of the MEI database which is explained in detail in the July 2005 article “Changes to the MEI Real Indicators series”.

The attached Excel spreadsheet (Real_indicators_changes.xls) contains the following information which users may require to make changes to their data extraction systems:

·         A list of existing series whose codes have been changed from July 2005 (801 series – see worksheet ‘series with code changes’);

·         A list of series newly introduced in MEI publications from July 2005 (163 series – see worksheet ‘new series’ );

·         A list of series deleted from MEI publications from July 2005 (64 series – see worksheet ‘series deleted’).

Any queries associated with these changes should be addressed to eun-pyo.hong@oecd.org .

 

SEASONAL ADJUSTMENTS


New seasonal adjustments by OECD are generally carried out once a year, when the December figure is available. Revisions to individual series due to new seasonal adjustments by national source or by OECD are not signalled in this note.
