would have an upward bias, which would be eliminated when rebasing. In such cases, substituting an old outlet for a new one that provides a similar standard of service would be preferable. Sample Rotation, Chaining, and Hedonic Indices 7.13 For some product groups, the product samples will become quite out of date if left to the next update or revision for the sample to be reinitiated. This is especially so if the rebasing is infrequent. Sample rotation is equivalent to initiating a new sample, but for a product group that maintains the same weights until the

excessive use of the 1991 fixed coefficients, as well as the poor estimation methods for imputed rental of owner-occupied dwellings, consumption of fixed capital, and changes in inventories. The CPI could be improved by introducing the use of direct quality adjustments. The weights, the establishments, and the product samples for the PPI should be updated at least every seven years. Intermediate data and statistical outputs are validated against other information, although the MFS and GFS data on central government financing are reconciled only once a year. Revision

University of Athens (Statistics Department). Other Investigate the use of statistical methods for sample selection . The NSSG is willing to investigate the possibility to introduce scientific sampling techniques and especially the possibility of introducing a probabilistic design of the outlet and products sample, considering the cost associated with different options. It has to be underlined that efforts and great steps have been made in the last revision of CPI where the geographical coverage was extended to the whole Greece as: increase in the number of

the establishments accounting for the bottom 30 percent. If the latter price movements are expected to differ substantially from the former, then a sample of the latter ones may be selected and the weight of 24,000 apportioned to the selected smaller establishments using principles similar to those outlined above. 5.31 Within each establishment, there will be a sample of eligible products (see Chapter 6 , Section G.2, for a description of product sample selection). For each sampled product within the establishment, we can calculate its share of imports among the

As stated, additional resources (that are currently not at our disposal) are crucial to integrate the input and output producer indices and increase their prominence. Update the WPI weights more frequently and provide additional metadata on the index (e.g., how the weights are derived at each level of aggregation and how establishment and product samples are drawn and maintained) . The CBS updated the WPI weights in January 2006 based on the reference

done on a regular basis although it is expected that the index will be updated in 2010. The last update of the index was in 2000. There are few regular comprehensive industrial surveys that can be used to update the weights, the product sample, and the establishment sample for the PPI. Plans are underway to resolve this problem. As a first step, a draft of a new business register is now available. 24.

Except for being compiled only by product aggregations and not by economic activity as well, the PPI is compiled based on concepts and definitions from the 1993 SNA and the international PPI Manual.
