REVIEW OF THE IMPORT AND EXPORT PRICE INDEXES

An information paper (Cat. no. 6424.0) is available on the review of both the Import Price Index (IPI) and the Export Price Index (EPI). An objective of this review is to update item weights and also reassess methodological aspects of the indexes. The main purpose of this information paper is to seek user input into clarifying the key uses of the IPI and EPI, and assess the extent to which the indexes satisfy these uses.
