Direct import intensity for each COICOP class
17 October 2018
Contains estimates of direct import intensity. For total import intensity based on latest data and updated methodology, please use the estimates provided here for CPIH and CPI. The methodology was updated based on analysis presented in the January 2018 Economic Review.
Each classification of individual consumption by purpose (COICOP) class is grouped by the estimated “import intensity” of final household consumption. “Import intensity” refers to the percentage of final household consumption that is directly due to imports. This does not include the effect of goods that are imported and then used as inputs for goods produced domestically. As imports data are provided on a classification of products by activity (CPA) basis, which is not directly comparable to the COICOP classification, these estimates should be seen as indicative.
