Constant prices


Prices from the definite period (so - called the base period). They are used to establish changes in physical size of aggregated economic notions (production, sales, consumption) in terms of value. Constant prices enable to exclude the impact of changes in current prices on indices of surveyed categories and ensure comparability with changes in their physical size over different periods.
