How are data organized?

Subscription Data Statuses



Within each data series presented in the Intratec databases, each data point is indicated with one of the following statuses: Final, Preliminary, Forecast, Reviewed.

Final – A piece of data is displayed as final when it is derived from official statistics (released by national governments, international organizations or any other sources used by Intratec).

Preliminary – The preliminary status is for data obtained through mathematical models used when official statistics are delayed. Preliminary data are replaced by final values as soon as official statistics become available.

Forecast – Forecasts refer to a machine-learning based prediction.

Reviewed – Data reported as Final might, in rare occasions, be reviewed due to (i) changes in official statistics released by countries/organizations; (ii) changes in Intratec data processing methodology; (iii) errors during data collection and processing. Whenever such rare data reviews are made, they are reflected in the respective data status.
