Practical Guide to Producing Consumer Price Indices

This Handbook is designed to give practical guidance on the compilation of consumer price indices (CPIs), focusing on practical solutions to issues facing the compilers of CPIs in the developing world. It offers advice on a whole range of operational issues confronted by index compilers from the sampling and collection of prices through to index construction and final publication. Although targeted at compilers of CPIs in developing countries it will also be of practical use to compilers of CPIs in other countries.

This Handbook supplements the ILO Manual on Consumer Price Indices.
