Producer Price Index

FBoS Release No: 30, 2016
30th June 2016


The experimental Producer Price Index (Services) measures changes in the average prices received by domestic service producers for a selected range of services. The main uses of the Index are to provide:

  1. deflators to estimate Gross Domestic Product (GDP) at Constant Prices.
  2. a short term indicator of the business cycle. 

The Fiji Standard Industrial Classification (FSIC) 2010 has been used for classifying industries and services.

The PPI (Services) survey only covers land transportation services. The index is published to engage users in the ongoing development of the methodology.

The movement in the producer prices of freight transport by road is due to increases in operational costs.
