MoSPI to release back series of GDP after consultations with expert panel

Sets up committee to bring more transparency in employment related data releases

by Nidhi Bhati

The ministry of statistics & programme implementation (MoSPI) will finanlise and release the back series of GDP based on new base year of 2011-12 after due consultations with the advisory committee on national accounts. The ministry has decided to revise the base year of the macroeconomic indicators and aggregates to 2017-18 and is working with other ministries and state governments towards aligning the data systems towards the proposed new base year, it said. MoSPI is also planning to launch new surveys including annual survey of service sector enterprises, annual survey of unincorporated sector enterprises, time use survey and the economic census. On the various employment released datasets, the ministry said the recommendations of the task force on improving employment data are being gradually implemented. Additionally, a committee has been set up under former chief statistician of India TCA Anant to reduce redundancy and avoid duplication in estimation of employment.
