Background notes

  1. Producer Price Indices monitor the price changes of goods bought and sold by UK manufacturers. Input prices are prices of materials and fuels bought and output prices, also known as ‘factory gate prices’, are prices at which goods are sold.

    As well as output and input price indices, results are shown for ‘narrow’ indices, which are a subset which exclude more seasonal and erratic items (food, drink, tobacco and petroleum).

    The figures shown are not seasonally adjusted unless otherwise specified.
