Methodological note

The Index of Competitive Position in Prices is defined as the product of the euro exchange rate by an index of relative prices of the Catalan manufacturing industry (section C of the CCAE-09).

An increase in the index always occurs when the euro is globally appreciated and/or when relative prices increase more (decrease less) in Catalonia than in the rest of the world. Note that this measure of competitiveness does not contain any other competitiveness factor other than price, in particular not those that modify the quality of manufactured products.

The countries in each area are as follows:

  • Eurozone: Germany, Austria, Belgium, Slovakia, Slovenia, Estonia, Finland, France, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxemburg, Malta, Netherlands, Portugal and Cyprus.
  • EU-28: Germany, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Denmark, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Estonia, Finland, France, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxemburg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, United Kingdom, Czech Republic, Romania, Sweden and Cyprus.
  • Developed countries: GGermany, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Slovenia, United States, Finland, France, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxemburg, Norway, New Zealand, Netherlands, Portugal, United Kingdom, Sweden and Switzerland.
  • New Asian industrialised countries: South Korea, Philippines, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Taiwan and China.
  • Industrialised countries: all of the above.

Data is provisional. If the international sources modify the exchange rates or the price indicators of previous periods, the price competitiveness is actualized.
