Producer Price Index - PPI


Producer Price Index - PPI
A family of indexes that measures the average change in selling prices received by domestic producers of goods and services over time. PPIs measure price change from the perspective of the seller.

The PPI looks at three areas of production: industry-based, commodity-based, and stage-of-processing-based companies.
