Last Updated: 6th May 2013

These Price Index indicators, or Price Indices, have been compiled using IMF data from as far back as 1980, and with forecasts as far forward as 2014 (the exact time period varies by index). The price indices measure the average cost of either single items or baskets of goods on a global basis for the year in question.

These indicators help us to understand a number of different trends within the world economy.

When we look at these indicators overall, which represent the most commonly traded commodities, we can get a sense of the interplay between supply and demand, and their effects on inflation.

Indices are typically grouped into energy (crude oil, gas and coal), metals (including iron ore, copper, lead tin, nickel, zinc, lead and uranium), food and beverages (broken down into a wide range of categories including meat, lamb, pork, chicken, fish, shrimp, various cereals, a range of cooking oils, soybeans, bananas, coffee, tea and cocoa), various timbers and materials (including wool and cotton).

There are also composite indicators indicating overall price trends including the master Commodity Price Index, the Commodity Non-Fuel Index, the Coal Price Index, the Food Price Index, Industrial Inputs Price Index (metals and agricultural raw materials) and the Timber Price Index. Some economists and traders believe that the Copper Price Index is one of the best predictors of economic activity, because it is found in the innards of all modern buildings - its resists corrosion and conducts heat - and is in plentiful supply.

In upcoming upgrades to the service, we will be adding more extensive economic data from the World Bank, the CIA World Factbook and elsewhere - please sign up for email alerts (on the home page) or follow @EconomyWatch on Twitter if you would like to be notified on updates.
