## PPI Formula

Fundamental Formula

PPI = Current price of basket/Base price of basket

Where,

Basket is the relative weight of goods and services in the current or base period.

Laspeyres Formula

This PPI formula weighs goods in proportion to their quantities in the base year.

PPI (Laspeyres) = (∑q_0 × p_t)/(∑q_0 × p_0 ) x 100

Where,

q0 = quantity in the base period

p= price of the product in the base period

pt = price of the product in the current year

Paasche Formula

This PPI formula weighs goods in the proportion of their quantities in the current year.

PPI (Paasche) = (∑q_t × p_t)/(∑q_t × p_0 ) x 100

Where,

q0 = quantity in the base period

qt = quantity in the current year

p= price of the product in the base period

pt = price of the product in the current year

Fisher Formula

This formula computes PPI as the geometric mean of PPI (Laspeyres Index) and PPI (Paasche Index).

PPI (Fisher) = √(Laspeyres Index X Paasche Index)
= √(((∑q_0 × p_t)/(∑q_0× p_0 ) x 100 ) X ((∑q_t × p_t)/(∑q_t × p_0 ) x 100) )

Among these formulae, BLS uses the Laspeyres Index formula to calculate PPI.
