Prices

Related information

The National Statistical Institute (INE) provides extensive information on the Consumer Price Index (CPI) and the index of labour cost.

The Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and Food publishes an index of agricultural prices charged, which measures evolutions in agricultural market prices from the standpoint of the producer.

Purchasing power parity (PPP) compares the monetary cost of a single basket of goods in different territories, usually states, at a given point in time. It is mainly used to standardise the purchasing power of residents in each state in order to eliminate the effects of the different price levels when comparing macromagnitudes. In Europe, a single PPP value is used for each state. The PPP values for Spain, which are also applied to Catalonia in accordance with Eurostat's criteria, can be found in the information on per capita GDP (see the Macromagnitudes section of this website).

The information concerning labour cost and salaries is detailed in the Labour section.
