Indicator:
Consumer price index, 2005=100:
The Consumer Price Index (CPI) aims to measure the average changes over time in the general level of prices of goods and services purchased by the households for their own final consumption.
The prices of a representative sample of goods and services are collected in monthly surveys and the CPI is compiled and published monthly. It is usually not revised or seasonally adjusted.
To some extent differences in compilation methods and in the coverage (of goods and services, geographical area and population groups) may influence the international comparability of the data.
A comprehensive and detailed explanation of CPI methodology is provided in ILO/IMF/OECD/UNECE/Eurostat/The World Bank (2004): (Consumer Price Index Manual. Theory and Practice. International Labour Office, Geneva).

Indicator:
Producer price index, 2005=100:
The Producer Price Index (PPI) aims to measure the average changes over time in the general level of prices of goods received by the domestic producers for their output (basic prices).
In most countries the PPI is compiled monthly, but in some (few) countries with less frequency. It is usually not revised and not seasonally adjusted.
To some extent differences in compilation methods and in the coverage of goods producing sectors may influence the international comparability of the data.
The PPI for the EU-27 countries, Croatia, Norway and Turkey are compiled on the basis of the industries production for the domestic market. For some of the remaining countries the PPI may include also the production for export.

From March 2009 data for EU countries is based on the NACE Rev.2 classification, the coverage of industry is slightly revised.Other countries are expected to introduce the revised NACE classification, or the corresponding revised ISIC classification, at later stages.

A comprehensive and detailed explanation of PPI methodology is provided in IMF/ILO/OECD/UNECE/ EUROSTAT /The World Bank (2004): Producer Price Index Manual. Theory and Practice. International Monetary Fund, Washington DC.
