International Recommendations/Methodology

This Handbook is the centre piece of a range of documentation prepared for ICP 2005. Its purpose is to explain the methods used at each successive stage of the ICP from the drawing up of the detailed product specifications and the product lists used for price collection through to the calculation of the final global set of PPPs at the GDP level.

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. It provides a record that shows exactly how the PPPs were produced It contains a large amount of new material that cannot be found in the existing economic and statistical literature or other published sources.
