Release Information

For Malta, a survey-based industrial producer price index, detailed by market (domestic, euro zone, etc.). Monthly from 2000.

The Maltese PPI is compiled by the National Statistics Office - Malta every month.

The Industrial Producer Price Index is a monthly survey, targeting the manufacturing and energy (water and electricity) sectors. The index monitors the changes in ex-works sale prices of all leading products within a sample of around 70 large enterprises.  Sampled enterprises account for over 80 per cent of total industrial turnover.

The scope of the index is to provide a measure of upstream inflation, at producer level, to supplement the measure of inflation faced by the household sector, as provided by the Retail Price Index (RPI) and Harmonised Index of Consumer Prices (HICP).
