In addition, for level comparisons of labor productivity, output needs to be converted into a common currency. The preferred conversion factors are Purchasing Power Parities, but their accuracy can be negatively influenced by the limited representativeness of the goods and services compared and different aggregation methods.

purchasing power parities should be equal to the value aggregate derived by valuing the quantity vector of a country at international average prices, i p for i = 1, 2, , M. It estimates purchasing power parities (PPPs) for use as currency converters to compare the size and price levels of economies around the world. Numerous methodological improvements and operational guidelines were introduced in the round of the ICP for the advancement of the program.

The Research Study on Poverty-Specific Purchasing Power Parities for Selected Countries in Asia and the Pacific is a methodological research for compiling purchasing power parities (PPPs) for measuring poverty in the region. The study covers 16 of the 23 economies participating in the International Comparison Program in Asia and the Pacific.

Basic headings are the lowest aggregation level in the ICP expenditure classification for which explicit national accounts expenditure weights can be estimated. Elementary purchasing power parities (PPPs) are then calculated for each basic heading based on these price relatives.

In this chapter, we move from the single country context of the previous chapters to the international context. The focus of this chapter is on purchasing power parities (PPP) and their robustness to procedures. PPPs can be viewed as cost of living index calculated spatially.

PPPs are conversion rates that convert to a common currency while equalizing the purchasing power of different currencies, hence allowing for accurate volume measures of economic activity, as well as comparisons of standards of living, across countries.
