Prices

The development of prices influences the quantity of production and consumption, and their structure as well. Price statistics typically observe the temporal change in the price of goods put on the market, though there are spatial price indices (e.g. purchasing power parity), too. The consumer price index quantifies changes in consumer prices, differently, producer price indices observe price changes from the point of view of producers. There are also cost-based price indices (e.g. of agriculture, labour force), which show the development of production costs over time. External trade price indices provide information on the price development of goods exports and imports.

Key figures

Change in consumer price index

Indicator description

Average change in the prices of goods and services purchased by households for own use, compared to the same period of the previous year. The consumer price index less 100 equals the change in consumer prices.
Source of data: Summary Tables (STADAT)
Last data for period: January 2020

Industrial producer price index

Indicator description

Average change in the producer prices of products produced by industrial producers and of the related provided services, compared to the same period of the previous year. The prices are basic prices, not including turnover tax, consumption tax and excise duty.
Source of data: Summary Tables (STADAT)
Last data for period: December 2019

Change in construction output price index

Indicator description

Average change in the prices of construction activities performed in construction, compared to the same period of the previous year.
Source of data: Summary Tables (STADAT)
Last data for period: Q4 2019

Terms of external trade in goods

Indicator description

The price index of goods exports divided by the price index of goods imports, multiplied by one hundred. If the value of the indicator is larger than 100, then the terms of trade improved, i.e. more import goods could be purchased for a unit of export goods (or less exports than earlier on had to be provided for a unit of imports). They show the change compared to the same period of the previous year.
