Methodological note

The Index of the Revealed Competitiveness is defined as the market share of exports by the Catalan manufacturing industry (sections 5 to 8 of the CUCI-Rev.3)) in each of the countries considered, indexed in the first quarter of 1999.

As opposed to the Index of Competitiveness in Prices, an increase in the Index of the Revealed Competitiveness is interpreted as an improvement in competitiveness. For a specific country, the Indicator increases as long as sales of products from the Catalan manufacturing industry in that country increase more than imports of products manufactured by the same country, or as long as there is a reduction in exports of products of the Catalan manufacturing industry that is lower than the reduction in imports of products manufactured by the same country.

The countries included in each of the main markets are as follows:

  • Main Monetary Union markets: Germany, Austria, Belgium, France, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands and Portugal.
  • Main markets of rest of Europe: Denmark, Poland, United Kingdom, Russia, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey and Czech Republic.
  • Main markets of rest of world: Australia, Brazil, Canada, South Korea, United States, India, Japan, Mexico and China.

This indicator is considered to offer provisional data. If the international sources modify exchange rates or price indicators for previous periods, the competitiveness indicators are consequently modified.
