The dataset provides information on the Consumer Price Index (CPI) and Industry (Producer) Price Index ("IPI" although properly it's a PPI) for the Republic of Kazakhstan. The data are disseminated as indexed values based on "previous month = 100" and "previous December = 100" and are not seasonally adjusted.
CPI is an indicator of retail price changes in a fixed-market basket of goods and services of constant quantity and quality, for the population for individual consumption.
PPI for industrial products provides a measure of the dynamics of prices for industrial products manufactured by Kazakh enterprises (irrespective of value added taxes and excises). The index is calculated based on the prices of a fixed set of products of constant quantity and quality.
The data are provided by NBK by sourcing information from the Republic of Kazakhstan Statistics Agency. CPI data are compiled through the information made available through expenditure surveys and others. The information on the prices is collected by price registrars directly at points of purchase of goods (services).
It includes aggregated data of the final consumption of households according to the SNA 1993 definition (all resident municipal and rural households). The survey includes all oblast centers (oblast is referred to as a region being one of Ukraine's 24 primary administrative units), the state capital of the city of Almaty, rayon centers and towns of oblast-level importance. The scope of consumer goods and services is broken down into groups based on the areas of their use by households, in accordance with COICOP and each item includes a minimum of 8-10 different types from each price collection point.
PPI covers all types of economic activities, including mining, manufacturing, and generation of distribution of electric power, gas AND water.
We seasonally adjust the total consumer price index using the U.S. Census Bureau's X-13 ARIMA program.
Both CPI and PPI data are final when first released and are not subject to revisions. The users are informed of major changes in methodology at the time the changes are introduced. Descriptions of any changes in methodology are included in all statistical publications in which the data are published.
