6427.0Producer Price Indexes, Australia, June 2017
Additional InformationPPI for output of the Retail Trade industry (RTPI) cannot be compiled with the same timeliness as other PPIs. The basic data required for the construction of the PPI for the output of the retail trade industry are quarterly sales and cost of goods sold (COGS). These economic flow data cannot be collected until some time after the end of the reference quarter. By comparison, price indexes for goods and some services are based on point in time prices prevailing at selected dates during the quarter. Further, calculation of the RTPI requires the latest period CPI data to be available for price updating purposes. Because of these constraints, the ABS will publish RTPI as stand-alone indexes. This will occur until the necessary systems and processes are in place to enable RTPI to be incorporated into the Stage of production (SOP) framework. The implementation of RTPI in the SOP indexes will be communicated ahead of time in Producer Price Indexes, Australia (cat.no.6427.0).
