Updates to the Industrial production index

The weights, as well as the Seasonal and Working-Day Adjustment models (SWDA models), used to compute the Industrial production index have been updated for the publication of the Industrial production index of January 2016, due on March 10th. The weights which were used previously were based on the provisional 2010 accounts on base 2005, whereas the new ones are based on the definitive 2010 accounts on base 2010.

Moreover, all the series are now SWD adjusted, whereas a trend was computed for some of those series before.

Producer price indices of French industry: new series for Electricity

Since January 1st 2016, the regulated electricity selling prices have been removed for the consumers subscribing high power (more than 36 kVA). This measure is linked to the legislative frameworks adopted with the opening of the electricity market to competition since 2000.

These evolutions lead INSEE to create new Electricity producer price indices for the french market and to revamp their dissemination.

Concerning Purchaser's prices for contract escalation in the Producer price indices of French industry for the French market, the identifiers of the series stopped in December 2015, those of the next series and the correspondence table are available here.

Consumer price index: new series 2015=100

On February 18, all consumer price indices will be disseminated in base 2015. The 1998=100 series will not be updated anymore and will be replaced by new ones.

The new classification of individual consumption by purpose (COICOP) is available in French in the Definitions and methods section.

The identifiers for monthly and annual indices, and for weightings are available in the following file (this list can be slightly modified by February 18):

Consumer price index

Since January 2016, INSEE has published a flash estimate at the end of every month. This index, leading indicator of inflation, is intended for use primarily by economists. It should not be used to index-link a contract.

These provisional index are the first on base 2015.

The detailed figures will be disseminated in BDM the 18 of February 2016. The new BDM identifiers will be available from the February 10.

From now on, INSEE brings forward substantially the publication of the quarterly accounts

The first estimate is henceforth released less than one month after the end of the quarter instead of 45 days up to now. The results will be updated for the second estimate which will be published on 26 February 2016. These shorter deadlines require additional extrapolations for the data unavailable 30 days after the end of the quarter. Slightly wider revisions than previously are likely to arise, particularly in foreign trade and inventories.

BDM identifiers are not changed.

Revision of Labour Cost Index - salaries and costs

The year-on-year change of Q2 2015 LCI-total labour cost (indices here) is revised downward by 0.5 index points, following improvements in the measurement of the responsibility and solidarity pact effects.

Producer cost indices for construction (contract escalation) - Civil engineering (TP) indices - TP08 - Roads development works and maintenance and TP09 - Making and implementation of mixes

The availability of new information on the series used to calculate price indices of refined petroleum products (CPF 19.20) led INSEE to revise the series 001664757.

Therefore, it is necessary to change the values of June and July 2015 of the TP08 and TP09 indices. The impact of the correction is available in this note.

October 2015

Producer price index of bitumen sold in France: series at market prices corrected and series at base prices stopped

Some complementary analyses of price series on refined petroleum products (CPF 19.20) have led us to revise markedly the price index series 001664757 without any impact on more aggregated series. The effect of the correction could be found on this note.

Otherwise, a misuse of the index series 001653054 have led us to stop the series since January 2015 (last value December 2014). This series can be replaced by the equivalent new series 001664757 with the connecting coefficient 1.0011.

Modification of some series of the business survey in the building craft industry

An error affecting a few series of balances of opinion of the business survey in the building craft industry from the 1st quarter of 2015 was detected and corrected. It concerned four balances of opinion: past activity, of which dwellings improvement and maintenance; past activity, of which other improvement and maintenance; expected activity, of which dwellings improvement and maintenance; expected activity, of which other improvement and maintenance.

Modification of the reference year for Labour Cost Index

Until Q4-2014, the index reference year was 2008 (the average of 2008 indices was equal to 100) for these series. Upon Eurostat request, the index reference year has shifted to 2012 (the average of 2012 indices is equal to 100) since Q1-2015. This change in the reference year is not accompanied by methodological changes. If necessary, for rebuilding an index which has 2008 as reference year, quarter-to-quarter percentage variations have to be applied to the old index. An other possibility is to divide the new index, by the average of the 4 quarters of 2008 and to multiply it by 100.

“Commercial Rent Index” value rectification for the first quarter of 2015

Correction of certain levels of Producer Price Indices series

A mistake impacting certain levels of Producer Price Indices series since January 2014, introduced end of February 2015, was detected. This mistake concerned levels of series n° 001652621, 001652622, 001652623, 001652625, 001652626, 001652627, 001652628, 001652629, 001652631, 001652633, 001652700, 001652702, 001653469, 001653470, 001653471, 001653473, 001653474, 001653475, 001653476, 001653477, 001653478, 001653479, 001653483 and 001653485 between January 2014 and January 2015. The price developments were also revised, marginally (rounding). Producer Price Indices at purchaser's price for contract escalation were not concerned by this mistake. The Information rapide on January 2015 was corrected as a consequence. The previous Informations rapides (on 2014) were not concerned by this revision.

Connection between old and new Building indices (BT)

Producer cost indices for construction of October 2014, which have been published on 15th of January 2015, have shifted at same time to base 2010. Current Building indices (BT), Civil Engineering indices (TP) and various indices for construction have then been stopped, but, as for any rebasing, INSEE systematically proposes a “corresponding series” in front of each “stopped series”, and clarifies hereafter the rules for connexion.

You can consult the attached:

Correspondence tables for other construction indices are accessible in BDM news of December 2014 (the connecting coefficient of PMR index has been modified, this of IM index has been added).

The “documentation on the series” of BT, TP and various indices, as well as on IM index, provides the composition of these indices and main methodological features.

Publication of the Commercial rent index (CRI) and the Tertiary activities rent index (TARI) from the first quarter of 2005

For implementation of Articles 9 and 11 of the Act 2014-626 of 18 June 2014, and in order to allow the calculation of rent capping of leases renewed since September 1st, 2014, for commercial leases using the Commercial rent index (CRI) or the Tertiary activities rent index (TARI) over nine years, INSEE publishes today their values from the first quarter of 2005.

Previously published values are not modified.

New “Building” (BT), “Civil engineering” (TP) and “Various” (EV, FD, FG, FV, ING, PMR, TR) Producer cost indices for construction will be available in January 2015

INSEE took over Producer cost indices for construction, when calculating the November 2013 indices which were published in February 2014. The project ownership was previously assigned to the Ministry of Ecology, sustainable Development and Energy. The indices of October 2014 to be published in January 2015 will shift at the same time to base 2010, like other short-term indicators.

The base change means a reference change (average of 2010 = 100), but also an update of weights and methodological conventions.

The list and the contents of some indices are changed, especially in Civil engineering (TP). The indices of wood in Building (BT) are the subject of two groups and a creation. The “equipment” items of Building and Civil engineering indices respectively, are added to the list of Various indices in construction, so that they can be used directly in contract escalation formulas.

Building owners can already mention in their new contracts the index of the most appropriate structure for the review clauses or indexing to come, since the indices of October 2014 will be published directly in base 2010, mid-January 2015.

New annual national accounts series available on base 2010

Annual national accounts released by INSEE are now published on base 2010, updating the former base of 2005.

The shift to base 2010 allows the national accounts framework to be adapted to the economic reality they describe, and also harmonizes the methods used to certify and improve data comparability between countries. In its new version, the European System of Accounts (ESA 2010) introduces, in particular, some important conceptual innovations, focusing on investment scope (including intangible investment), foreign trade recording, or description of the insurance business activity. It applies to all European countries from September 2014.

This base shift is accompanied by numerous additional improvements which are described in these methodology sheets (in French only).

A second wave of updates will be performed during the 4th quarter of 2014 and will cover the remaining series, namely:

  • General government expenditures broken down by function;
  • Financial accounts;
  • Balance sheets;
  • Gross fixed capital by industry;
  • Institutional sector accounts.

Warning: unemployment according to the ILO and indicators on the labor market for the 2nd quarter of 2014

Since the first quarter of 2013, the questionnaire of the Labour Force Survey is an updated one. The changes of the questions have an impact on the estimates of levels (see documents accompanying the publication of March 6, 2014). Trends remain unaffected.

In March 2014, the estimates were based on the results of the new questionnaire. The longitudinal series have been revised to remain consistent with the new questionnaire. Improved measures of inactive people who wish a job (unemployment's halo) and under-employment are also published.

In September 2014, almost all of the complementary indicators, such as core employment or active life expectancy are published again. They are available in the BDM.

Information about the calculation and the dissemination of Producer cost indices for construction: “Building” indices (BT), “Civil engineering” indices (TP) and “Various” indices (various costs, road transport, vegetables and grains, greens, engineering, road markings)

Since the dissemination of Construction indices on November 2013, “Building” indices (BT), “Civil engineering” indices (TP) and “Various” indices (various costs, road transport, vegetables and grains, greens, engineering, road markings) are calculated and disseminated by INSEE.

They were previously calculated and disseminated by the “Service of economy, evaluation and integration of sustainable development” of “General commission of sustainable development”, in the Ministry of Ecology, Sustainable development and Energy.

In order to ensure a synergy with its own productions and to reinforce the statistical robustness of these Producer cost indices for construction, INSEE uses Industrial producer and import price indices and Hourly labour cost elaborated according the methodology and the quality criteria defined by the European statistics.

The methodological documentation published on the end of February 2014 on BT and TP indices and Various indices will precise all modifications introduced; They will only concern the development of the indices, not the historical data.

New theme “Culture” in the BDM

The BDM has been enhanced with a new theme about Culture. The consumption in cultural goods and services, the sector's prices index, imports and exports are available for download over several decades. Figures on the French Cultural Heritage, the museums and the press can also be found. Last, time series on the sector's employment and French cultural practices complete the theme.

Warning: unemployment according to the ILO and indicators on the labor market for the 3rd quarter of 2013

Since the first quarter of 2013, the questionnaire of the Labour Force Survey is an updated one. In addition, interviewers of INSEE are working under new employment contracts since January 1 2013, which led to temporary difficulties in the organisation of the network of interviewers and a decrease in the response rate.

On June 6 2013, the release of the results of the survey was partial because more work was needed to check the coherence of the data affected by these changes. Only an estimate of the unemployment rate was released. Since then, the data have been precisely assessed to evaluate the impacts of the changes on the estimates. The key indicators of the labour market (unemployment rate, employment rate, labor force), broken up by gender and aggregated age, are now available for 2013.

Complementary indicators such as underemployment, halo around unemployment, core employment and active life expectancy are not published so far.

Warning: unemployment according to the ILO and indicators on the labor market for the 2nd quarter of 2013

Since the first quarter of 2013, the questionnaire of the Labour Force Survey has been updated. In addition, interviewers of INSEE have been working under new employment contracts since January 1 2013, which has led to temporary difficulties in the organisation of the network of interviewers, hence a decrease in the response rate.

On June 6 2013, as more work was needed to check the coherence of the data affected by these changes, only an estimate of the unemployment rate was released. Since then, the data have been precisely assessed to evaluate the impacts of these changes. The key indicators of the labour market (unemployment rate, employment rate, labor force), broken up by gender and aggregated age, are now available for the first and second quarters of 2013.

Complementary indicators such as underemployment or halo around unemployment, remain unpublished so far.

Warning: producer price indices and import prices

The loading of Friday 30th of November 2012 has modified by mistake the confidentiality status of numerous series into “statistical secret” between July 2010 and June 2012.

The values of the series from July 2010 to June 2012 have not changed since 31st of October 2012, neither have the values of the series from July 2012 to October 2012 between the 30th of November and the 3rd of December 2012.

Corrections of Producer price indices in industrial production sold in France for knitted and crocheted fabrics (CPF 13.91) and railway locomotives and rolling stock (CPF 30.20) from July 2010 - impact on aggregated indices

The strong revision on the railway locomotives and rolling stock series is due to a late rectification of a supplier for the entire time series over more than a year. The revision of the series related to knitted and crocheted fabrics is due to a technical correction. The two groups of series have been modified from July 2010.

Cessation of “price indices of resale on the French market of imported industrial products”

It has become impossible to question twice the same firms, both on their purchaser's prices at imports and on their seller's prices of imported products, which let believe that we attempt to measure implicitly trade margins. The “price indices of resale on the French market of imported industrial products” are therefore stopped since 30th of March, 2012, and followed by “import price indices of industrial products” for the possible use of contract escalation.

Consequently, the list of “total supply of industrial products price indices” has been markedly shortened, and following series are proposed among “producer price indices of French industry for the French market” and “import price indices of industrial products”.

In order to facilitate the building by the internet user of composite prices “producer price indices of French industry for the French market” + “import price indices of industrial products” for a given product, in the spirit of “total supply of industrial products price indices”, a table of weightings has been added to the documentation on these series, which allows also the user to compile aggregated indices of his choice.

Correction of some series values in “producer price indices of French industry on the French market at purchaser's price for contract escalation” and “total supply of industrial products price indices”

In the delivery of 27th of February, 2012, of “producer price indices of French industry on the French market at purchaser's prices for contract escalation”, some values have been wrongly modified between May and September 2011 included. This update of 9th of March, 2012, restores the values of the delivery of 31st of January, 2012, on this period.

On the other hand, an isolated mistake has been committed on the “total supply of industrial products price indices” for item “29.10 - motor vehicles” and the period from May, 2011 to January, 2012, which has led us to modify exceptionally these indices on this past period, on the occasion of this update of 9th of March, 2012.

New series on annual national accounts on base 2005

Since February 24, 2012, the annual national accounts released by INSEE are published on base 2005, instead of base 2000.

The transition of the national accounts to base 2005 was needed, due to:

This change of bases comes with numerous improvements, described in the methodology sheets provided on base 2005.

New series on new passenger cars registrations

Since January 2, 2012, INSEE no longer directly disseminates data on new passenger cars registrations.

It is now the Ministry of Ecology, Sustainable Development, Transportation and Housing through its statistical office SOeS that takes care of this.

Small discrepancies between the method of seasonal adjustment and revision due to new passenger cars purchased by civilian or military services of the state, which no longer exist in the new series, may explain the differences between the two series.

Correction of “producer price indices of French industry on the French market”

A late answer to the French PPI survey, including a new product with a quality change badly taken into account in our statistical treatments, has led to an inappropriate revision of the producer price index of “installation services of industrial machinery and equipments” (product 33.20) on the French market in July, 2011, with an impact of 0,6% on the level of the whole industry since this time. This mistake had not been discovered in time for the delivery of 30th of November at 8:45. a.m. It has then been treated and solved in this new delivery of 30th of November at 12:55 a.m.

Correction of producer price indices on the French market (at market prices) for industrial limestones (CPA 08.11) since January 2010 - consequences on aggregated indices
