Random article: Producer Price Index (PPI Index)
Producer price index (PPI) embraces all stages of production starting from commodities and ending with retail. To measure index, change in price for about 3450 kinds of goods at various stages of production is analyzed. The closest attention is paid to the price for final good, because it gives the most probable price for goods that are ready for sale. Wholesale prices are taken into account. Measurement does not take into account import goods and services, but accounts for the cost of import commodities and component kits.
