It is intended mainly for all those involved in, or with responsibilities for, the compilation of PPPs including professional economists and statisticians working at all levels in National Statistical Offices and the various international and regional agencies involved in the program.

This Handbook also serves as a reference document for the benefit of users as well as compilers.
