Release Information

Producer price index numbers at the commodity level for the Netherlands according to the European product nomenclature.

The source writes:

CBS calculates and publishes the producer price index number (PPI) on a monthly basis. The index, based on the year 2000, represents the average change in price of the commodities produced in the Netherlands, distinguished to domestic sales, foreign sales and imported goods.

The prices, on which the price index is based, are collected by observation at industrial and commercial enterprises. Price observation of goods produced in the Netherlands takes place at the sales side of the market according to the conditions concerned: prices are ex-factory, excluding value added tax and subsidies. Import prices are collected under the condition of c.i.f. ("cost, insurance, freight"). In general the prices are related to the month in which the commodities are being delivered.

The PPI is being calculated according to the method by Laspeyres. This method relates the price of a product in the period under review to the price of the same product (same quality and delivery conditions) in the base year. In case of the PPI the price development of a group of products, representative for the base year, is being followed.
