Detailed Average Prices Detailed Average Prices

The detailed average prices (DAP) supplement existing consumer price statistics by providing price level data of up to 190 well-defined consumer goods and services.

DAP are used to monitor Single Market policies, to analyse price convergence, and to help understand how markets work. DAP results are analysed in the Consumer Markets Scoreboard published by Commission Directorate-General for Justice and Consumers (DG JUST).

DAP present indicative prices for specific groups of products as an additional set of price data. With their focus on absolute prices  DAP complement  the measurement of inflation (HICP) and international price level comparisons based on purchasing power parities (PPPs).

The 2015 data collection is the eighth and final exercise. The DAP project will be discontinued.

The research documents below include data as well as a technical introduction of the project and its limitations.
