Domestic Prices/Deflators - Sources and Methods

These data are based on national accounts data, discussed above. Overall (GDP) and domestic absorption prices are implicit deflators, that is, they are ratios of current and constant price estimates of relevant aggregates. Domestic prices for agriculture, industry, and manufacturing are, in principle, price indexes of value added; the consumer price index reflects prices of goods and services used for private consumption of households. For most countries, price indexes are implicit deflators derived from volume and value estimates.
