PriceStats collects online prices to provide daily inflation updates for 22 economies. In addition, sector views are available for the United States. Global inflation trends are available for targeted regions, with in-depth views for food & fuel.
Using online prices we compute the relative cost of a basket of ~250 identical product categories in each country versus the United States and signal Real Exchange Rate deviations from PPP (Purchasing Power Parity) or Real Exchange Rate historic averages.
