For the Philippines, the Producers Price Index (PPI) for Manufacturing is a composite figure of producer's prices of representative commodities included in the market basket.
The PPI serves various purposes, the most important of which are: to measure monthly or yearly changes in the producer's price of key commodities in the manufacturing sector, to serve as deflator to Value of Production Index (VaPI) in the estimation of the Volume of Production Index (VoPI), and to serve as deflator in the estimation of manufacturing production in real terms (at constant prices) in the system of national accounts.
We extend the history of the general index to 1993m1. We produce a seasonally adjusted counterpart to the extended general index, using X-13ARIMA-SEATS.
