Data Series Available

  • The user is advised to consult the UQ International Comparisons Database: UQICD Version 2.0 User Guide and the technical papers from the project to decide the most appropriate series to download. Unless stated otherwise, all PPPs are expressed relative to US dollar. The following are the major series available.

  • PPPs at GDP Level at Current Prices - These PPPs can be used in converting GDP data in any given year into a common currency unit. Three alternative series are available.

    • PPP - this is our preferred series constructed without imposing any restrictions

    • PPP_ICP_CON - these PPP series are constrained to coincide with PPPs from the ICP for benchmark years

    • PPP_DEF_CON - these PPP series are constrained to track the national price movements implicit in the published GDP deflators

  • Standard Errors for PPPs - An important feature of our series is the availability of standard errors for all the PPP series. This is made possible due to the econometric approach used in constructing the series.

  • PPPs for major components and aggregates - PPPs at current and constant prices are available for the following major aggregates:

    • PPPC - PPPs for Consumption

    • PPPI - PPPs for Investment

    • PPPG - PPPs for Government

    • PPPDA_GEKS - PPPs for Domestic Absorption (C+I+G) (GEKS Method)

    • PPPDA_GK - PPPs for Domestic Absorption (C+I+G) (GK Method)

    For these four major series, you can download current price PPP and their standard errors

  • Current Prices Real GDP and Components

    • RGDP_PC- these are consistent space-time comparable incomes per capita in USD

    • RGDPC_PC- these are consistent space-time comparable household consumption expenditures per capita USD

    • RGDPG_PC- these are consistent space-time comparable general government expenditures per capita USD

    • RGDPI_PC- these are consistent space-time comparable gross capital formation per capita USD

  • Constant Prices Real GDP and Components

    • CRGDP_PC- these are consistent space-time comparable incomes per capita in USD of 2005 prices

    • CRGDPC_PC- these are consistent space-time comparable household consumption expenditures per capita USD of 2005 prices

    • CRGDPG_PC- these are consistent space-time comparable general government expenditures per capita USD of 2005 prices

    • CRGDPI_PC- these are consistent space-time comparable gross capital formation per capita USD of 2005 prices

  • CHARTS - For a quick review of our PPP series for comparison purposes, you may download charts for any country of your choice.
