29/07/2022 - Operations on goods and services: adding two series

To contain the rise in fuel prices, a 15 cent per litre tax-free rebate is applied since April 1st 2022. In national accounts, this rebate is accounted as a subsidy on products (D319) on coke and refined petroleum products (A17-C2 in the QNA nomenclature).
As this type of subsidy is new for this product, two new time series (in value and volume) has been created to take account of the new subsidy. In value, the series is equal to the estimate of the amount of the tax-free subsidy. In volumes chained at previous year prices, the estimates is made by applying to the tax base the tax rate in force during base year, 2014, which 0 in that case, as the subsidy didn’t exists at the time : the series is thus 0 for the whole period. Those amounts are taken into accounts in all aggregates and accounting equation.

10/03/2020 - Reviewing of the methodology of the the industrial production indices

Since the swap to the new basis 2015 in march 2018, the industrial production indices (IPI) are reviewed at the rate of one fifth of the series each year. This annual update will make it possible to improve the relevance of the IPI with regards to the evolution of technologies and production processes, by adapting the way of measuring such product, by including emerging products or, on the contrary, removing old products. The second annual review is implemented with this publication in march 2020. It has improved slightly the coverage of the industrial production index and has lead to introduce two new indices: manufacture of other products of wood; manufacture of articles of cork, straw and plaiting materials and manufacture of jewellery and related articles. The adjusted series have been backward-reviewed from 2017. This can generate revisions on indices, even if they are rather moderate at an aggregated level. In parallel with this modification, Seasonnal and working-day ajustment (SA-WDA models) are reestimated on a sub-period (since 2005) to adjust indices on the recent past, in order to provide improved fit and better robustness.

07/02/2020 - The use of scanner data for calculating the Consumer Price Index

From January 2020 on, the French CPI uses scanner data on the scope of manufactured food products, of cleaning products and of the products for personal care sold in supermarket and hypermarket in metropolitan France.
The huge number of data improves the quality of the index. In 2019, an impact study was carried out. This impact on the all-item index is relatively low (-0.08 points at most on the index; 0.1 points in certain months on the annual or monthly change). However, scanner data impacts are higher on classes for which the use of scanner data is more important.
Scanner data makes it possible to follow two additional Coicop sub-classes (02.1.3.3 beers with low alcohol content or without alcohol and 02.1.3.4 beer-based beverage). Contrariwise, some average prices will no longer be published, because of conceptual differences in the computing of average prices with the scanner data (use of the daily purchased quantities and better tracking of special offers).

January 2020

27/01/2020 - New series on the level of training of job seekers registered at Pôle emploi

Since 2018Q2, the measurement of the job seekers’ level of training has been disturbed by the implementation by Pôle Emploi of the online service "skills profile" for job seekers.
Without affecting the number of people registered at Pôle emploi, this change however modified their distribution by level of training. It would thus have led to a 4 point downward revision of the part of job seekers with a training level below the baccalauréat (from 56% to 52% after the setting of the “skill profile” service) registered in categories A, B and C.
From now on, the series by level of training are published according to this new measure, and begin in 2018Q1 instead of 1996Q1 for the series published until then. The “historical” series, according to the methodology prior to the implementation of the “skill profile” service, remain available (over the period from 1996Q1 to 2018Q1).

March 2019

08/03/2019 - Reviewing of the methodology of the industrial production indices

Since the implementation of the new basis 2015 in March 2018, the industrial production indices (IPI) are reviewed at the rate of one fifth of the series each year. This annual update will make it possible to improve the relevance of the IPI with regards to the evolution of technologies and production processes, by adapting the way of measuring a product, by including emerging products or, on the contrary, removing old products. The first annual review is implemented with this publication in march 2019. It has significantly improved the coverage of the industrial production index and has lead to introduce three new indices : Industrial manufacture of bread and fresh pastry, Manufacture of other articles of paper and paperboard and Pre-press and pre-media services. The adjusted series have been backward-reviewed from 2015. This can generate revisions on indices, even if they are rather moderate at an aggregated level. In parallel with this modification, SA-WDA models have been reestimated on a sub-period (since 2005) to adjust indices on the recent past, in order to provide improved fit and better robustness (SA-WDA models were until now estimated on the whole period, i.e. 1990 to 2019).
