Methodological guide for developing producer price indices for services

The Methodological Guide for Developing Producer Price Indices for Services is a complement to the International Producer Price Index Manual (PPI Manual) published by the IMF in 2004 in two ways: it focuses on service-specific aspects in the PPI compilation by developing further the conceptual framework and it adds detailed descriptions of PPI measurement for a series of service industries. This Guide has been jointly produced by the OECD, Eurostat and the members of a Taskforce with delegates from 19 OECD/EU Member countries. The electronic version of the Guide is made available on both the OECD and Eurostat websites. This Guide is seen as a ‘living document' which could be amended and updated to incorporate additional service industries and to address particular points in greater detail. This Guide will permit the development of services producer price indices in the EU and OECD regions and beyond provide better information for decision-making and analysis.
