Abstract

The Consumer Price Index Manual: Concepts and Methods contains comprehensive information and explanations on compiling a consumer price index (CPI). The Manual provides an overview of the methods and practices national statistical offices (NSOs) should consider when making decisions on how to deal with the various problems in the compilation of a CPI. The chapters cover many topics. They elaborate on the different practices currently in use, propose alternatives whenever possible, and discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each alternative. The primary purpose of the Manual is to assist countries in producing CPIs that reflect internationally recommended methods and practices.

Abstract

Para la mayor parte de los ciudadanos, la compra de un inmueble residencial —una vivienda— es la operación más importante de toda la vida. Los inmuebles residenciales hogares y, al mismo tiempo, el activo más valioso. Los índices de precios de inmuebles residenciales (IPIR) son números índice que miden el ritmo al que evolucionan los precios de los inmuebles residenciales con el correr del tiempo. Los IPIR son estadísticas fundamentales no solo para los ciudadanos y los hogares del mundo entero, sino también para las autoridades económicas y monetarias. Entre otras cosas, sirven para vigilar los desequilibrios macroeconómicos. Este Manual presenta por primera vez pautas exhaustivas para la compilación de IPIR y explica en detalle los métodos y las prácticas óptimas utilizados para calcularlos. Asimismo, examina los conceptos económicos y estadísticos fundamenmetodológicas y prácticas para la compilación de este tipo de índice. El Manual está dirigido principalmente a los encargaíndices; al mismo tiempo, atiende la necesidad general de IPIR ofreciendo a todas las partes interesadas en su compilación un marco metodológico y práctico armonizado. El Manual es obra de destacados especialistas en la teoría de números índice y reconocidos expertos en la compilación de estadística de la Unión Europea, con la colaboración del Banco Mundial, la Comisión Económica de las Naciones Unidas para Europa (UNECE), el Fondo Monetario Internacional (FMI), la Organización Internacional del Trabajo (OIT) y la Organización para la Cooperación y el Desarrollo Económicos (OCDE).

Abstract

L'achat d'un logement est généralement l'opération financière la plus importante à laquelle un citoyen procédera au cours de sa vie. Le logement représente la plus grande proportion des dépenses des ménages, mais également leur bien le plus cher. Les indices des prix de l'immobilier résidentiel mesurent le taux de variation de ces prix au fil du temps. Ces statistiques sont essentielles non seulement pour les ménages du monde entier, mais également pour les décideurs de la politique économique et monétaire. Parmi leurs utilisations professionnelles, ils servent par exemple à surveiller les déséquilibres macroéconomiques et l'exposition aux risques du secteur financier. Ce manuel, premier du genre, présente des orientations complètes pour l'établissement des indices des prix de l'immobilier résidentiel et explique en détail les méthodes et bonnes pratiques utilisées pour leur calcul. Il examine également les fondements économiques et statistiques sous-jacents, et définit les principes qui orientent les choix méthodologiques et pratiques pour l'établissement des indices. Le manuel est destiné principalement aux statisticiens officiels chargés de produire des indices des prix de l'immobilier résidentiel, ainsi qu'à toute partie intéressée par l'établissement de tels indices, en leur fournissant un cadre méthodologique et pratique harmonisé. Le manuel des indices des prix de l'immobilier résidentiel a été rédigé par d'éminents spécialistes universitaires de la théorie des indices et par des experts de l'établissement de tels indices. Sa préparation a été coordonnée par l'Office statistique de l’Union européenne (Eurostat), avec la collaboration de la Banque mondiale, de la Commission économique des Nations Unies pour l’Europe, du Fonds monétaire international (FMI), de l’Organisation de coopération et de développement économiques (OCDE) et de l’Organisation internationale du travail (OIT).

Abstract

For most citizens, buying a residential property (dwelling) is the most important transaction during their lifetime. Residential properties represent the most significant component of households’ expenses and, at the same time, their most valuable assets. The Residential Property Prices Indices (RPPIs) are index numbers measuring the rate at which the prices of residential properties are changing over time. RPPIs are key statistics not only for citizens and households across the world, but also for economic and monetary policy makers. Among their professional uses, they serve, for example, to monitor macroeconomic imbalances and risk exposure of the financial sector. This Handbook provides, for the first time, comprehensive guidelines for the compilation of RPPIs and explains in depth the methods and best practices used to calculate an RPPI. It also examines the underlying economic and statistical concepts and defines the principles guiding the methodological and practical choices for the compilation of the indices. The Handbook primarily addresses official statisticians in charge of producing residential property price indices; at the same time, it addresses the overall requirement on RPPIs by providing a harmonised methodological and practical framework to all parties interested in the compilation of such indices. The RPPIs Handbook has been written by leading academics in index number theory and by recognised experts in RPPIs compilation. Its development has been coordinated by Eurostat, the statistical office of the European Union, with the collaboration of the International Labour Organization (ILO), International Monetary Fund (IMF), Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) and the World Bank.

Abstract

El Índice de Precios al Consumidor (IPC) mide la evolución de los precios al consumidor de los bienes y servicios a través del tiempo. Es una estadística clave para formular tanto políticas económicas, especialmente monetarias, como políticas sociales, y tiene consecuencias importantes y diversas para los gobiernos, las empresas, los trabajadores y los hogares. Este exhaustivo manual proporciona pautas para oficinas de estadística y otras agencias responsables de la elaboración del IPC y explica en profundidad los métodos utilizados para calcularlo. También examina los conceptos y principios económicos y estadísticos necesarios para tomar decisiones eficientes en función de los costos y para apreciar las consecuencias de esas elecciones en toda su magnitud. Es una herramienta valiosa para los encargados de formular políticas y los investigadores, especialmente para aquéllos interesados en los números índice. Las siguientes organizaciones internacionales que se interesan en la medición de la inflación y en las políticas para controlarla colaboraron en la preparación de este manual: la Organización Internacional del Trabajo, el Fondo Monetario Internacional, la Organización de Cooperación y Desarrollo Económicos, la Oficina de Estadística de la Comunidad Europea (Eurostat), la Comisión Económica de las Naciones Unidas para Europa y el Banco Mundial. ----------------------- The consumer price index (CPI) measures the rates at which the prices of consumer goods and services are changing over time.
