4.4 In compiling the experimental indexes it has been necessary to use proxy series for certain transactions. For example, series from the Price Indexes of Materials used in Manufacturing Industries (which are at purchasers’ prices rather than basic prices) have been used for the output of the Agriculture industry.

4.5 For imported capital and consumption items, free on board (f.o.b.) series from the Import Price Index have been incorporated, where f.o.b. is an earlier pricing point than basic prices (i.e. imports at basic prices would include international freight and insurance).
