Export and import unit value indices by sections and divisions of CPA
Export/import unit value index
The export/import unit value index (EUVI and IUVI) characterises changes in the price level of exported and imported goods within the reporting period against the base period. The unit value index is a "price" index that measures average value changes in a heterogeneous cluster of units. Therefore, it may be influenced by changes both in the composition of this cluster and in individual prices.
The average unit value is obtained by dividing the value of exported/imported goods in monetary terms with the respective amount of the goods (weight, volume etc).
