PRE-BREAK VALUE

Statistics Directorate    
Definition:
The pre-break value is the observation, at a time series break period, that was calculated using the “old” methodology, with the “observation” being calculated following the “new” methodology.

Context:
SDMX allows for a pre-break value in the case of a series break (where one would use the observation value to show the post-break value).
