Price level comparisons

The pricelevels-package provides index number methods for price comparisons within or between countries. As price comparisons over time usually rely on the same index number methods, the package has been denoted more generally as pricelevels, though its primary focus is on spatial price comparisons. Currently, the following index number methods (or price indices) are implemented.

  1. Bilateral price indices:
  2. Multilateral price indices:

Moreover, the package offers functions for sampling and characterizing price data. Details can be found in the package vignette.

The pricelevels-functions are designed based on R’s data.table-package.
