Treatment of Exports and Imports, and Adjustment of Household Consumption for Net Purchases Abroad

P. McCarthy, E. Diewert, and S. Sergeev collaborated to analyze the following problems and provide recommendations for the Technical Advisory Group:

·         Exchange rates were used to compute PPPs for exports and imports. The issue was whether there should be some adjustments to exchange rates to reflect differences in costs such as freight charges.

·         PPPs are not computed for net purchases abroad, instead the estimated expenditures are distributed across other basic headings.
