  OECD-Eurostat 2005 INQUIRY ON NATIONAL COLLECTION OF SERVICES PRODUCER
                                    PRICES



ABSTRACT

As a contribution to the development work of the Voorburg Group on services producer price indices and
of the OECD-Eurostat Task Force, this paper reports the outcome of the 2005 OECD-Eurostat inquiry into
countries’ practices in the field of data collection of these prices. It also may be seen as an update of the
accumulated record of previous annual inquiries.

The set of Tables have been slightly changed from the previous surveys. Particularly, more summary
tables are shown to provide a better overall picture rather than presenting only detailed responses from
countries.

As in earlier years, the questionnaire was sent to all OECD Member countries, EU candidate countries and
countries associated with the Voorburg Group. Countries were asked to report on new collections, or plans
for collection, of services producer prices since July 2004. A variety of supplementary information was
requested by ISIC group of service activity. Countries were invited to indicate the CPC classes of products,
within each ISIC group, for which prices are collected. Information was also sought on publication of
services prices indices, their use as deflators and availability of methodological reports on work in this
area.

Countries were also provided an opportunity to check and update directly the existing inventory tables.
Several countries used this opportunity, and some updated the old tables and filled in the questionnaire.
Via this procedure, many errors in the inventory were identified and corrected.

Responses from 36 countries show a continued expansion of activity since July 2004 in those countries that
undertake this work. The total number of countries that collect data (30 countries) has not significantly
increased from the previous year but much progress has been made in improving the coverage of services
PPIs, and there are several countries where preparatory work has started or is planned to be started in the
near future. There is a large diversity in both service sector coverage and national practices. Most countries
only attempt to cover a subset of service activities, with these prices. Of countries that produce services
PPIs, about two thirds have an index for Telecommunications and Freight transport by road and these
services are also under active development in rest of countries that have started developing services PPIs.
Noteworthy, for telecommunication, services PPI either exists or is under development already in 27
countries. In addition to these two service industries, many other transport and communication activities,
particularly Sea and coastal transport and Post and courier activities (both National post activities and
Courier activities) have been subject of considerable development since July 2004. Developing work
continues actively also in number of business services like Advertising, Legal activities, Accounting,
book-keeping etc. activities, Investigation and security activities and Building cleaning activities.




                                                                                                            2
Until recent years, there has been a fairly equal split between monthly and quarterly pricing frequencies but
now the share of quarterly indices seems to be increasing. An obvious reason is that the present
development work concerns largely industries where production of monthly indices is difficult.

There is also variation amongst types of prices collected and types of services priced though transaction
prices of ‘simple’ services are reported most often.

More and more data are published, and used as deflators in the national accounts, with much useful detail
provided by respondents. Nonetheless progress is not straightforward due to the level of development work
needed and constant concerns over conceptual correctness and data quality.




                                                                                                           3
    Preliminary Report on the OECD-Eurostat 2005 Inquiry on National
                 Collection of Services Producer Prices

INTRODUCTION

1. The inquiry into National Collection of Services Producer Prices became in 2002 year a joint venture
   between OECD and Eurostat. This has expanded the country coverage and increased the level of
   interest. It is hoped that this report will inform the discussions of the Voorburg Group and the joint
   Eurostat-OECD Task Force on Services Producer Prices, as well as provide useful reference material
   for those statisticians seeking to collect new service producer prices, and others seeking to understand
   the extent to which countries are improving measures of services output.
2. In order to measure the real output of services, including short-term indicators of output, it is necessary
   to develop a set of deflators appropriate to particular service products and activities. This need is
   accentuated by the growing weight of service sector output in GDP that is seen in most economies.
   Interest in this area is accentuated by analytical needs to understand the impact of the “new economy”
   on productivity growth and in particular in those service activities where investment in new technology
   has been high.
3. Mainly in this context there is a considerable effort being undertaken, in a significant number of
   national statistical agencies, to develop the collection of data on services producer prices. Some
   agencies have focused exclusively on prices of services provided to enterprises, while others have
   approached the subject more broadly through the development of services producer price indices.
4. The UN Statistical Commission in 1999 asked the Voorburg Group to focus on the measurement of
   these prices. The Voorburg Group has been working closely with the Technical Expert Group1 on
   Producer Price Indices (TEG-PPI), which was is charge of developing the manual on producer price
   indices.
5. The Voorburg Group has asked OECD to continue with this study on national development work in
   the area of services producer prices and provide an information exchange role with a webpage2.
6. Inevitably in this fast developing area of statistics OECD, Eurostat and national statisticians have a
   concern about quality and international comparability of data. What further needs to be done, beyond
   that which is being taken forward by the Voorburg Group to identify and spread good practice and
   ensure a reasonable level of comparability of national economic statistics.
7. This report on the results of the 2005 inquiry is an update of an annual inquiry into services producer
   prices collected by national statistical agencies. The inquiry was carried out by the Prices and
   Structural Economic Division of the Statistics Directorate of the OECD in consultation with Eurostat.
   The report giving information on the state of activity of 45 countries has a number of annexed tables
   and explanatory notes. It is offered as a working and evolving document and as a contribution to the
   work of those concerned with services producer prices.

The 2005 Inquiry
8. The questionnaire together with the existing inventory tables was sent out first time on 9 July 2004 to
   all OECD and EU Member States, EU candidate countries and several other countries associated with
   Voorburg Group meetings. On the whole, the questionnaire was sent to 46 countries.
9. It was requested:
      a) information on whether or not countries collected services producer prices
      b) if yes a report on recent developments in national collection of services producer prices since July
          2004
      including:
                    i.       new price surveys with details;
                    ii.      plans for future price collection
                    iii.     discontinued price surveys:
                    iv.      details of publication of services PPI data
                    v.       methodological publications/papers
                    vi.      details of use of services PPIs as deflators by national accountants
      c) a PPI contact name for exchange of information
      d) any comments on the entries in tables 2 and 3 of the 2004 report concerning collection of prices
          classified by activity (ISIC3 rev 3) and prices classified by product (CPC4 v 1.0) respectively;
10. Responses were received from 34 countries. The cumulative responses to this and the previous
    inquiries are summarised in tables 1, 2 and 3.
11. Table 1 “State of Inquiry - Services Producer Prices” provides a simple summary of cumulative
    national responses to the inquiry.
12. Table 2 “Summary of Responses to Inquiry on Prices by ISIC Activity” provides summary information
    by activity, on which countries collect data, what type of prices are collected, the frequency of
    collection, the type of service priced, and the start date.
13. Table 3 “Summary of Responses to Inquiry on Prices by CPC Product” sets out, for those countries
    that have been able to provide it, information on price collection by 3 or 4 digit ISIC activity and
    product. Products are classified by CPC version 1.0 as far as possible, but some products have not been
    definitively classified.
14. Table 4 provides summary information on the number of countries where services PPIs for particular
    activities (ISIC rev 3) are either available or under development or are planned to be developed in the
    near future.
15. Table 5 summarises how many industries are covered by services PPIs in various countries and for
    how many activities new PPIs are currently under development.
16. Table 6 shows the development of new PPIs and revisions of PPIs in countries since July 2004.
17. Table 7 shows industry by industry how services PPIs are divided into monthly, quarterly, 6 monthly
    and annual indices. The table includes existing PPIs and PPIs that are under development or planned to
    be developed if information on frequency has been available.

18. Table 8 provides new publications of data and methodology, Table 9 why and for who data are
    collected and Table 10 information on the use of services PPIs as deflators in the national accounts.
    Country abbreviations and a list of nominated national contacts are shown at the end.
19. To provide some historical background, the 1997 questionnaire asked countries to indicate for ISIC
    Rev. 3 service groups or classes, the type of price collected (i.e. whether list, transaction, mark-up
    price, other), the frequency of pricing, the number of price quotations per period, the type of service
    priced (simple service, composite service, service bundle, other), the start date of data collection.
20. The 1998 questionnaire introduced the correspondence between those ISIC groups or classes for which
    services PPIs are collected (listed in the response to the 1997 questionnaire) and the CPC5 version 1.0,
    at the five or occasionally four digit level. Respondents were requested to indicate for which CPC
    classes price data are collected, or to describe which service products are observed where they do not
    fit CPC classes.
21. At the request of the Voorburg Group contact names were sought and in 2001 a special question was
    asked on why these data are collected and for which users.
22. The focus over recent years has evolved from prices of services provided to enterprises to services
    producer price indices (PPIs), which is broader in scope. In fact some countries collect the former and
    some the latter.




RESULTS

Summary Table 1
23. Table 1 (in the Annex, Tables) sets out which countries have responded to the OECD inquiry in 2005
    and in previous years and attempts to categorise their activity in the domain of collection of services
    producer prices. It indicates which collect price data on these services, which have indicated future
    plans for data collection, and those countries that have provided CPC product details relating to prices
    collected.
24. Out of the countries which have responded to OECD since 1997, 30 of them report that they collect
    services producer prices (Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, China, Czech Republic, Denmark,
    Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong (China), Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Korea, Lithuania,
    Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden,
    Switzerland, United Kingdom, United States, Vietnam). In addition, preliminary work has started in
    several others, particularly European countries on the auspices of Eurostat.

25. Eight countries reported that they do not yet collect services producer prices (Bulgaria, Cyprus,
    Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Luxembourg, Malta and Portugal). Out of 30 OECD countries 6 appear to
    compile no services producer prices indices. These are all in Europe with four in the EU. However, in
    most of them developing work is planned to be started in the near future or even started but has been
    put temporarily on hold due to lack of resources.

Producer price indices by service activity

26. Table 2 provides information by ISIC activity and country on producer price collections. It is an
    updated version of a table that was first presented to the Voorburg Group in 1998.

    • Columns 1 and 2 list, ISIC rev 3 codes and descriptions of activity groups (three digit level) or
    classes (four digit level).
    •   Column 3 provides the codes of countries which report collecting services PPIs for that activity.
    • Column 4 gives details of the type of price collected. Three types of prices are identified, list
    prices, transaction prices, mark-up prices and a residual category “other” is provided for those prices
    which do not correspond to any of the three differentiated types:
      -- A list price is a price or tariff published by the service provider which can be collected by simply
    reading the list; list prices are gross of any discounts which some customers may be able to negotiate.
      -- A transaction price is the price actually charged by the producer after deduction of any discounts.
      -- A mark-up price is calculated by the statistical office by adding a mark-up, reported by the service
    provider, to the estimated cost of hours of work. This type of price is used for services consisting
    mainly of labour inputs.
        -- some countries have also identified the type “model price”, where a well specified hypothetical
    job is priced.
    • Column 5, frequency of pricing, indicates whether prices are collected monthly (M), quarterly (Q),
    six-monthly (6 M) or annually (A);
    • Column 6 shows the number of price quotations per period.
    • Column 7, type of service priced, three types of services are identified, a simple service, a
    composite service, a service bundle; a residual category “other” is provided for those services which
    do not correspond to any of the three differentiated types.
       -- A simple service is a standard service. These may, in some cases and where appropriate, be
     measured in physical quantity units such as ton-miles, number of hours.
       -- A composite service is a service composed of a number of simple services which are necessarily
     produced together due to existing regulations, security measures or production processes. The
     customer is not free to choose to purchase only some of the components of a composite service.
     Either all are purchased together or none are purchased at all.
       -- A service bundle is composed of a set of services negotiated between the service provider and
     the customer. The bundle of services provided may differ according to the customer.
    • In column 8, start date, the actual or planned date for data collection of prices is indicated.
    • In column 9 information is flagged on publication and use of the price index as a deflator in the
    national accounts.
    • Column 10, Notes, gives additional information on coverage, type of price collected and type of
    service priced.

27. The most popular service PPIs are shown in the chart below of which data is based on the summary
    table 4. In these industries a PPI either exists or is under development at least in 14 of 30 price
    collecting countries.




                                                                                                            7
              Number of countries where services PPIs for particular industries are available
                                      or are under development


                                                       0   5   10   15   20   25   30

  7421 Architectural and engineering activities and
           related technical consultancy

                      621 Scheduled air transport


                    611 Sea and coastal transport

      7412 Accounting, book-keeping and auditing
               activities; tax consultancy

                      6411 National post activities

                                                                                          PPI available
                                   743 Advertising
                                                                                          PPI under development

    6412 Courier activities other than national post

  551 Hotels; camping sites and other provision of
            short-stay accommodation

                  7493 Building cleaning activities


         7111 Renting of land transport equipment


                              7411 Legal activities


          7492 Investigation and security activities


                   6302 Storage and warehousing




28. The frequency of pricing (see Table 7) for the activities is predominantly monthly and quarterly with a
    few cases of annual or six-monthly. Monthly prices predominate in ISIC sections G, I and O, with
    quarterly pricing predominating in the other sections except section H where the shares are almost
    equal. The type of price collected is a transaction price or, slightly less frequently, a list price; mark-
    up prices, and other prices are less common. Margins are identified as the target price for certain
    industries such as wholesale and retail, particularly by the US and Australia. The type of service most
    frequently priced is a simple service. Composite services and, to a lesser degree, service bundles are
    also priced, sometimes in conjunction with a simple service. The number of price quotations varies
    widely between countries within each ISIC group and from one ISIC group to another. Most
    responding countries started collecting data on services PPIs after 1990, but a few countries (Germany,
    Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, US) have at least some data which go back longer.




                                                                                                                  8
29. It is not always clear, where countries collect producer prices of services that might be supplied to
     consumers or enterprises, whether or not they make a differentiation between the two types of
     customer in the prices collected.

30. These results serve only as a starting point to define standard practices for data collection on services
    PPIs. It would appear that there is a broad preference for measuring simple services, transaction prices
    and for monthly or quarterly data.



Producer price indices by service product
31. Table 3 indicates the CPC classes of products, or other service products, which may not be matched to
    the CPC, for which prices are collected. CPC classes are listed so as to show the correspondence with
    the ISIC groups given in Table 2.
32. To understand the links between Tables 2 and 3, it should be noted that only those ISIC groups or
    classes for which price collection by product has been identified, by at least one country, appear in
    Table 3.
33. Table 3 is laid out as follows:
     • Columns 1, 2 and 3 are identical in principle to those in Table 2. ISIC Rev.3 codes and headings
     are given in columns 1 and 2. Codes of countries which collect data on these service activities are
     given in column 3.
     • Columns 4 and 5 list the product codes and headings of the CPC version 1.0 corresponding to the
     ISIC headings given in columns 1 and 2.
     • Column 6 indicates the acronyms of countries which are able to identify service products for which
     prices are collected, in terms of the CPC.
     • Column 7 indicates service products for which prices are collected but do not fit the descriptions of
     CPC classes. Services which do not match the CPC are described in the terms used by respondents.
     The description of the service is aligned either with the CPC class to which it comes closest or on a
     separate line when a correspondence with CPC is not possible.
     • Column 8 gives additional information on prices.

34. Countries were asked to provide information if possible on products priced, using either the CPC or a
    description where the CPC classification is inadequate. Most countries do not actively or directly use
    the CPC, and this unfamiliarity consequently may make a few respondents reluctant to complete the
    product section. To date 20 countries have provided information on products being priced (Australia,
    Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Korea, Netherlands, New Zealand,
    Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom, United
    States).
35. A crude count of CPC products and “other service products” priced shows that there are 182 CPC
    service classes corresponding to the 60 ISIC groups for which product prices are collected and
    identified. Prices for over 160 “other service products” are also collected. If these are added to the
    CPC classes, under the assumption that all “other services” correspond to different products, a total of
    over 300 service products are priced by the twenty respondent countries altogether. In fact these “other
    products” are in most cases either combinations of CPCs or part of one or several CPCs. This does not
    mean, of course, that each of the countries collects data for 300 service products. For countries
    individually, the number of products priced varies between less than five for Spain, Slovak Republic




                                                                                                           9
              and Slovenia and over 100 for Japan and New Zealand with Australia and USA pricing almost as many
              products.
         36. The figures above give a rough indication of the extent to which producer prices of services are
             measured. The following table A gives a better idea of the distribution and extent of price collection
             by identified product for the 20 countries responding in Table 3. For fuller details refer to Table 3 and
             the accompanying notes. The actual number of products priced when indicated by CPC is not a precise
             or strictly comparable indicator of price collection activity and numbers should be treated with
             appropriate caution. We can see that eleven countries are collecting prices by identified product for a
             broad range of business services (at least four of the ISIC groupings).

Other information
38. Current use of services PPIs used as deflators in national accounts. The question has been included
    only in the inquiries for 2002-2005. Countries were asked: “If some services PPIs are used as



                                                                                                    11
    deflators in your national accounts, can you please provide any details as to how they are used and the
    extent of the use”. Answers for all inquiries are combined below.
39. Response have been received from fifteen countries, fourteen of which have at least some services PPIs
    already used as deflators of output in the national accounts. It appears that well-established series are
    nearly always used as deflators. The full responses including some very detailed ones are described in
    Table 10 of the Annex.
40. Why are data collected and who are the principal users? Fifteen countries have responded to this
    question of which most explicitly mention use by National Accounts. Other common responses were as
    a deflator of output, for monitoring of price movements and inflation, as a short-term indicator of
    economic activity, for business use and as part of a national strategy on improving measures of prices
    or output. Full responses can be found in the Annex (Table 9).
41. Price indices: Information provided indicated that price indices used are generally Laspeyres type
    indices, but that has not been tested after 2001.
42. Data publication and methodological documents: Responses from countries can be found in the
    Annex, (Table 8).




Some Concluding remarks

43. Responses to the 2005 OECD-Eurostat Inquiry on National Collection of Services Producer Price
    Indices show a continued expansion of activity since July 2004 and in 2005 in those countries that
    undertake this work. In several new countries PPIs for services are under development.
44. There is a large diversity in both service sector coverage and national practices. Most countries only
    attempt to cover a subset of service activities, with these prices. Industries that have been subject of
    considerable development work since July 2004, are particularly Telecommunication services,
    various transport activities, Post and courier activities and number of business services like
    Advertising, Legal activities, Accounting, book-keeping etc. activities, Investigation and security
    activities and Building cleaning activities.

45. Coverage of detailed services products varies among activity groups. In only a few cases are the
    service products of an activity group well covered and then it is only by small number of countries.
    There is also variation amongst types of prices collected and types of services priced though
    transaction prices of ‘simple’ services are reported most often. There is a fairly equal split between
    monthly and quarterly pricing frequencies. The share of quarterly pricing seems to be growing due to
    active developing work in launching PPIs for business services where monthly pricing is often
    particularly difficult.

46. More and more data are published, and used as deflators in the national accounts, with much useful
    detail provided by respondents. Nonetheless the progress cannot be very fast due to the level of
    development work needed and constant concerns over conceptual correctness and data quality.




                                                                                                          12
47. Country practices are still very varied and while the proposed the shared experiences and principal
    papers on prices of the Voorburg Group, the new PPI Manual and the forthcoming OECD-Eurostat
    Methodological guide may help in harmonising practice, further actions are likely to be needed in this
    fast developing area to identify the priority needs for harmonisation and promote a greater degree of
    convergence towards good practice.

48. The use of the CPC as an internationally accepted product framework in services output and prices
    work, while inadequate in some respects, should be encouraged and any identified CPC deficiencies
    addressed in the 2007 revision process.

49. Comments from delegates on the accuracy of the report and possible improvements are invited.

(1) AUT        Currently Statistics Austria is collecting price data for Scheduled Passenger Air Transport and Advertising
               Services. Due to confidentiality reasons and the experimental character of these two indices, no time series
               are published at the moment.

(2) DNK        Denmark is collecting or planning to collect data for services producer prices indices to cover the
               forthcoming STS-regulation. The collecting started in November 2003 and has been expanded during 2005.
(3) JPN    Services prices are collected for compiling the Corporate Service Price Index (CSPI), which is the price
           index that aggregates the transaction prices between companies. The CSPI has been revised from the 1995
           base to the 2000 base in November 2004.

(4) LTU    A pilot survey on services producer prices has been started in the following activities of NACE: Sea and
           coastal water transport (61.1), Schedule air transport (62.1), National post activities (64.11), Courier
           activities other than national post activities (64.12) and Telecommunications (64.2).
           The respondents have been selected and a questionnaire prepared as well as instructions for filling it in.
           The representative services were selected jointly with enterprises.
           Price data are planned to be collected and experimental quarterly price indices calculated in the second half
           of 2005.

(5) NZL    Statistics New Zealand commenced with a redevelopment program in September 2003. All commodity
           indexes within all the industries in the suite of Producers Price Indexes will be reviewed and redeveloped.
           The program is planned to continue until July 2008. After that period a new version of the Australian and
           New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification (ANZSIC 2006) will be implemented. During the current
           redevelopment period (2003 to 2008), new commodity indexes will be developed as needed to be used in
           the new industry structures in the PPI based on the new classification (ANZSIC06)

(6) SVK    Slovak Republic has started to develop PPIs for the following industries:
           In 2004: 70, 71, 72, 74 (experimental calculations available)
           In 2005: 64, 65, 66 (experimental calculations available)
           In 2006: 60, 61, 62 (planned)

(7) SVN    In 2005 Slovenia started to study the following sectors:
           - Freight transport by road (ISIC 6023 / NACE 60.24)
           - Post and courier services (ISIC 641 / NACE 64.1)
           - Telecommunications (ISIC 642 / NACE 64.2). (Collection of list prices has already started).
           - Legal activities (ISIC 7411 / NACE 74.11)
           - Accounting, bookkeeping and auditing activities (ISIC 7412 / NACE 74.12)
           We are currently in process of examining the structure of those sectors, testing different approaches for
           price collection, reviewing experiences of other countries and making visits to corresponding branch
                  i ti
(8) BGR    Producer Prices in Services is the new indicator that is required in the Regulation 1158/2005 concerning
           short-term statistics. In 2006 NSI will start compilation of output prices for selected NACE activities that are
           required in the Regulation. NSI will start compilation of output prices with following NACE activities: 64.11
           National post activities; 64.12 Courier activities; 61.1 Sea and costal water transport; 62.1 Scheduled air
           transport; 64.2 Telecommunications. The methodology for compilation of the indexes will follow the draft
           joint OECD/Eurostat Methodological guide for developing producer price indexes for services. The new
           indicator will have a first reference period of January 2005. The first results will be available at the end of
           2007 and regular data transmission to Eurostat will be started.

(9) BRA    Since 1998 Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics (IBGE) has been studying services activities
           through an Annual Survey on Services and we are planning to introduce a Monthly Survey up to 2007. For
           that we also started studying the alternative to develop a Producer Price Index for Services which will be
           used as a deflator for it’s historical number series.
           Data on service production in selected activities are collected since 2000: road transport, railroad transport,
           water transport, air transport, computer services and telecommunication and audio-visual services. In 2004
           we implemented a new Appendix for Engineering and Architecture Services and in 2005 we are going to
           implement an Appendix for Professional Services (legal services, accounting services and other enterprise
           support services). Product classification used in the survey is developed according to the CPC version 1.0
           and will be used to build up PPIs for services.

(10) CYP   It is planned to start the development of the services price index in September 2005. For this purpose we
           have received a grant from Eurostat within STS.

(11) EST   Statistical Office of Estonia does not collect services producer prices yet. We are studying certain sectors of
           services (legal and accounting activities).

(12) LUX   A pilot study was carried out in 2003/2004 and a number of industries were selected where price collection
           will be started. However, the developing work is on hold due to lack of resources and will be restarted in
           2006 providing that resources become available.
(13) LVA   Work to develop PPIs for Freight transport by road (ISIC 6023), Post and courier activities (641) and
           Telecommunications (642) started but, due to internal difficulties in CSB, is temporarily stopped. As soon as
           the difficulties are solved, the work will continue.

(14) MLT   The NSO Malta has started this year the work on PPIs by sending out appropriate questionnaires to collect
           information on the following services:
           1) For construction NACE 45, we are investigating road construction from the Malta Transport Authority
           (exhaustive information on civil engineering, since all roads will be covered including bridge construction)
           and government estate contracts (from the Department of Housing & Maintenance). Based on information
           received we will shortly contact private construction companies to obtain a more comprehensive view of
           construction as a whole.
           2) For NACE 60, 61 & 62 (land, water and sea transport) we are starting to work on these service prices,
           and also on NACE 64 (we have made good progress on mobile telephone services and working on courier
           services, and fixed telephone services).
           The above 2 points are already covered by way of a Eurostat grant. It is intended to cover in future (by
           2007) the following NACE categories for service prices, NACE 55, 72 and 74, and port services and travel
           agents within NACE 63). It is planned to start the development of the services price index in September
           2005. For this purpose we have received a grant from Eurostat within STS.

*) PPIs are not necessarily published. Moreover, also PPIs extracted from CPI are included and,
therefore, data for countries are not fully comparable. The share of PPIs extracted from CPI is
particularly high for DEU and FIN. Also HKG and NZL have informed that some indices are
based on CPI.
**) Includes only developments of new PPIs by the activity classification used in the inventory.
Developments within existing PPIs (by that activity classification) are recorded under Produced
PPIs. For this reason, e.g. ongoing work in USA to develop PPIs for sub-industries of Retail trade
is not recorded as Under development.

NZL    A comprehensive methodological document for all Business Price Indices (including services) is currently being written, with an expected completion of August
       2005. The purposes of this paper are two-fold. First, it documents the principles and procedures employed by Statistics New Zealand in the production of the
       Business Price Indices (BPIs). The BPIs include: the Producer Price Index (PPI), which measures price changes relating to the production sector of the economy;
       the Capital Goods Price Index (CGPI), which measures changes in the cost of capital assets purchased by producers of goods and services throughout the
       economy; and the Farm Expenses Price Index (FEPI), which measures price changes of fixed inputs of goods and services to the farming industry. Secondly, this
       paper identifies similar procedures currently used in other countries so that Statistics NZ practices may be considered in light of the best international practices.

Table 9   What are the main purposes for your collection of services PPI data and who are the principal users?


AUS       National Accounts, Industry Associations, to complete economy wide Stage of Production Price Index

CAN       Principally for System of National Accounts Branch of Statistics Canada
          They use indexes for deflation purposes

DEU       Short term economic indicator, it serves as deflator for the national accounts, auxiliary data for consumer price indices
          Users are economic policy, associations and national accounts

FIN       Main users: National Accounts and trade unions

FRA       For French public statistical system: price deflated, national accounts,short-term information on economic activity
          For firms: information on markets relative to their business

HKG       To improve the quality of national accounts with wider range of deflators of output series
          An economic indicator for monitoring price movements of local output and evaluating price competitiveness vis à vis similar products in other territories
          Users: National Income Branch CSD, HKG China, economists & policy makers in Government and business, academics etc.

JPN       The main purpose of compiling the CSPI is to investigate price movements that sensitively reflect the
          supply and demand conditions of individual services, with a view to facilitating the analysis of macro- and micro-economic conditions.
          The indexes of less aggregated levels also have a role as a “deflator” that transforms nominal output values into real quantities.
          Economists, market analysts can use the index to capture the economic situation of Japan from the viewpoint of prices.
          Of course, the Bank of Japan uses the index for judging the economic situation of Japan and for conducting
          monetary policy. While the Cabinet Office, in the case of Japan, uses the index as a “deflator” for compiling the SNA.

MEX       To complete the national accounts structure, with prices for specific services not found in CPI
          Users are in both the public and private sector

NLD       For National Accounts within Statistics Netherlands
          For other economic agencies, for industry associations and firms

NZL       To provide deflators for the New Zealand national accounts
          To provide a measure of price change for businesses

POL       Deflators for national accounts in the part concerning industrial production; auxiliary data for compiling CPIs;
          information on development of services prices for such users as banks, research institutes, etc.

SWE       For national accounts, the services PPI aim to provide robust deflators for the calculation of GDP

CHE       As an economic indicator (measure of inflation and a short-term indicator)
          As a deflator of output
          For analysis (macroeconomic, comparative analysis of industries and products)
          Practical uses (for indexation of prices in budgets, contracts, and pricing of tenders etc)

GBR       An indicator of inflation in services sector
          For national accounts, a deflator of service sector output in GDP and for the index of sevices output
          An information tool for business

USA       Input for calculation of real GDP and productivity
          The BEA uses appropriate PPI series to double deflate nominal revenues to determine
          - real output on a gross product originating basis.
          The BLS Office of Productivity and Technology uses PPI data to help calculate industry productivity measures
          These derived economic measures are of critical importance for economic analysis and policy setting.
          The expansion of the PPI into services has already permitted significant improvements in the measurement of real output
          - and productivity for service industries with significant time series.
Table 10   Use as Deflators

AUS        The National Account uses these indexes for quarterly processing especially for the Trading and Production team. The Production team in the
           National Accounts has utilised the PPI price to derive deflators for turnover. A Fame process was created to compile deflators for Manufacturer's
           Turnover and Other Turnover series sourced from the quarterly business indicators (QBIS). For the most part, QBIS is sampled at the 2 digit level
           which is mainly the level we revalue, but Road Transport and Wholesale are sampled at a more detailed level. The Trade assembly makes
           extensive use of EPIs, IPIs, indicator series, PPI services. PPI service indexes are used to derive correct volume estimates especially for the
           Services export.
           Some of these indexes are also used to create deflators for the Annual supply use table because the input-output generally require indexes at the
           4 digit level.
           On the use PPIs as deflators in National Accounts, see Table 2.
            For Accommodation, National Accounts are still using no. guest nights as a volume indicator. However the Accommodation PPI has been recently
           developed ready for use by National Accounts.

CHE        Following PPI for services are used in Swiss NA:
           - Freight transport (rail and road)
           - Architectural, engineering and other technical activities

CHN        Price index for real estate services is used as deflator for value added of real estate services.

CZE        When the year GDP is produced in our national accounts, the indices of market business services (4 digit groups in CZ – CPA) are usually used as
           deflators. The electronic data are sent to the National accounts department each year (quarterly).

DEU        -      freight transport by road: calculation of freight rates per km (separatly for long distance traffic and local traffic) for ten categories of goods

FIN        All producer price indices that are publishes are being used as deflators in National Accounts (annual/quarterly GDP)

FRA        PPIs are used as deflators(annual national accounts) for : renting of construction and civil machinery equipment (code ISIC 7122), renting of land
           transport equipment (7111), accounting (7412), security activities (7492), building cleaning activities (7493), engineering activities (7421) and
           computer services (activities in 72).

GBR        There are twenty ONS CSPIs used as deflators. They are used to deflate value to volume for UK National accounts. The CSPI are used to deflate
           8.6% of the UK GDP (as measured by GVA weighting). The CSPIs which are used a ONS deflators are:

           Maintenance and repair of motor vehicles
           Hotels
           Canteens and catering
           Bus and coach hire
           Road haulage
           Freight forwarding
           Courier services
           Business telecommunications
           Construction plant hire
           Market research
           Technical testing
           Employment agencies
           Security services
           Contract cleaning
           Commercial film processing
           Contract packaging
           Secretarial services
           Translation services
           Waste disposal
           Sea and Coastal Water Freight

HKG        PPI series are used as deflators for discounting the effect of price change so as to derive the constant price value added of relevant economic
           activities. They are also used for deflating export of services of relevant economic activities to derive constant price estimates of export of
           services.

JPN        Service price indexes of the CSPI compiled by the Bank of Japan are used as deflators in Japan’s national accounts compiled by the Cabinet
           Office. The Cabinet Office matches service price indexes of the CSPI with appropriate components of the national accounts as deflators.

NLD        They are widely used in an automated simultaneous balancing procedure of current and constant price estimates in the
           supply and use table.

NOR        List of deflators provided to OECD more information from svein.lasse.rogeborg@ssb.no

NZL        Most of the service indexes are used in the deflation of the National Accounts.

POL        Services producer price indices in "Transport, storage and communication" for the section in total and divisions, and in “Construction” - in total and
           for the groups are used in national accounts:
           Quarterly on the basis of:
           - year 2000 = 100
           - previous quarter = 100,
            - corresponding quarter of previous year = 100
           Annually on the basis of:
           - previous quarter = 100

SWE        All producer price indices are being used as deflators in National Accounts (annual/quarterly GDP)

USA        For use of deflators see http://www.bea.doc.gov/bea/ARTICLES/2004/11November/1104NIPAMeth.pdf
           At present published coverage of the services sector is 76.3 percent, versus just 3.6 percent in 1990. Service sector coverage is projected to
           increase to over 77 percent by 2006.

           The Producer Price Index is a principal input for the calculation of real GDP. The Bureau of Economic Analysis uses appropriate PPI series to
           double deflate nominal revenues to determine real output on a gross product originating basis. The Survey of Current Business article specified in
           the web address provided above was updated in November of 2004 and Table 2 (beginning on page 28) specifically lists the areas of Real GDP
           where the PPIs for services are used as deflators.
