Brazilian Economical Indexes

 

  1. IGP-M – Market General Price Index calculated by the Fundação Getúlio Vargas (FGV). The collecting of prices is carried out between the 21st of the previous month and the 20th of the current month and it is published on the 30th of the current month It is composed of three indexes: Wholesale Prices Index (IPA), Consumer Price Index (IPC) and Construction Cost National Index (INCC) that represent 60%, 30% and 10% respectively of the IGP-M.

  1. IPA – Wholesale Price Indexes calculated by the FGV, based on price variations of the wholesale market. This index is calculated for three different intervals and is composed of other indexes calculated by the FGV (IGP-M, IGP-DI and IGP-10) with 60% weight.

  1. IPC – Consumer Price Index, calculated by the FGV, measures the inflation for families with income between 1 and 33 minimum wages, in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. The IPC represents 30% of the IGP-M. This index is calculated for three different intervals and is composed of other indexes calculated by the FGV (IGP-M, IGP-DI and IGP-10) with 30% weight.

  1. INCC – Construction Cost National Index, calculated by the FGV, measures the prices variation of a basket of products and services updated by the civil works sector. This index is calculated for three different intervals and is composed of other indexes calculated by the FGV (IGP-M, IGP-DI and IGP-10) with 10% weight.

  1. IGP-DI – Prices General Index – Internal Availability. It is calculated by the FGV between the first and the last day of the month. Its publication is made on the 10th day of the following month. It measures prices that directly affect the economical activity of the country, except exports. Like the IGP-M, it is also composed of the weighted average of the IPC, IPA and INCC, calculated for the respective period.

  1. INPC – Consumer National Price Index. Calculated by IBGE (Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics) in the metropolitan regions of Rio de Janeiro, Porto Alegre, Belo Horizonte, Recife, São Paulo, Belém, Fortaleza, Salvador and Curitiba, besides the Federal District and the municipality of Goiânia. It measures the prices variation of products and services consumed by families with income between 1 and 8 minimum wages. The period of collecting prices is from the first to the last day of the current month and it is published approximately after the period of eight working days.

  1. IPCA – Amplified Consumer Prices Index. It is calculated by IBGE in the metropolitan regions of Rio de Janeiro, Porto Alegre, Belo Horizonte, Recife, São Paulo, Belém, Fortaleza, Salvador and Curitiba, besides the Federal District and the municipality of Goiânia. It measures the prices variation of products and services consumed by families with income between 1 and 40 minimum wages. The period of collectind prices is from the first to the last day of the current month and it is published approximately after a period of eight working days.

  1. GDP Deflator It is the ratio between the nominal GDP and the real GDP, that is, it is the price of a specific good or service in a specific year relative to the price of the good or service in the base year. In summary: the nominal GDP measures the value of the production of the economy. The real GDP measures the product quantity, that is, the production evaluated at constant prices (of the base year). The GDP deflator measures the price of the product typical unit compared to its price in the base year.

  1. Nominal GDP: It is the value of goods and services measured at current prices.

  1. Real GDP: It is the value of goods and services measured at constant prices. It is a more perfect measurement of the economical well-being since it takes into account the total production of goods and services without the influence of prices variation.
