Index of import prices

Extract from the pdf-file - Quality Report - Index of import prices
What is collected is purchase prices (preferably in euros), which should refer to the terms of trade "cost, insurance, freight" (cif), where possible. The prices do not include any public charges or subsidies (customs duties, monetary compensatory amounts, import turnover tax, excise duties).

Quality Report - Index of export prices

Extract from the pdf-file - Quality Report - Index of export prices
The collected export prices are used to calculate export price indices which show the development of selling prices for the flows of goods leaving the German economy. Subindices of export prices are not only used for general (short-term) economic analysis but also serve as an orientation for many market participants when monitoring markets or shaping their pricing policy.
