Value added producer price parities (PPPs) at basic prices, 1999 to 2008
Table summary
This table shows the value added producer price parities that are consistent with the basic-price concept of output. Producer price parities were obtained for the benchmark year 1999 from Baldwin, Gu and Yan (2008). These PPPs were projected forward using the relative movements of business-sector GDP deflators for Canada and United States. The PPPs for the business sector (appearing as row headers) were calculated as a percent and expressed as the price of one Canadian dollar's worth of a product in terms of U.S. dollars. The United States and Canadian price indexes (appearing as row headers) are expressed as an index in each country's currency.
