ICP 2011 Round

The International Comparison Program (ICP) is being implemented as a true global initiative for the second time, with the reference year 2011. It will build on well programmed activities of a wide network of national and bi- and multi-lateral institutions that will engage in methodological research and review, survey activities and data processing and analysis in the areas of price statistics and national accounts and related fields with a view to estimating purchasing power parities (PPPs) of the world’s principal economies. 

The 2011 round of the International Comparison Program (ICP) will leverage on the successful implementation of the 2005 round which, based on a concerted effort by international and national statistical agencies, was better planned, managed and coordinated than ever.

The ICP Global Office will work to broaden the scope of the program, streamline quality assessment processes, improve the poverty relevance of PPP statistics, ensure the sustainability of PPP delivery, and enhance statistical capacity building activities related to the generation of ICP basic data with a specific focus on price statistics and the implementation of the System of National Accounts (SNA-2008).
