Producers price index: concepts, sources, and methods aims to provide customers with a greater understanding of how we compile the producers price index (PPI).
The publication describes:
- key concepts and structure of the PPI
- our methodology for compiling the PPI
- how we review the PPI to maintain its relevance.
See Producers price index weights for the industry and industry-by-commodity weights that we use in the PPI.
