Valid from2006
Previous versions1994
DescriptionThe manual has three aims: first, to explain to those engaged directly in the Programme - that is, to practitioners in Eurostat, the OECD and the national statistical institutes of participating countries - the why and the how and the when of the international price and volume comparisons of GDP organised by Eurostat and the OECD; second, to enable these practitioners to brief their senior management and significant users - such as politicians, journalists, academics and the like - on the why and how of the Programme and, more importantly, to advise them on the use and interpretation of comparison results; and third, to provide a point of reference accessible to teachers, students and other members of the general public interested in PPPs and related statistics.
