2 Comparing GDP & income measures in a given country over time ± GDP accounts are measured in “current prices” – sometimes known as nominal prices ± To compare over time, the measurements should be in “real” or “constant” prices ± Real prices are measured based on a particular level of prices of a specific year –the base for comparison March 26, 2010 Econ. 11 -- Lecture #25 5 Example (GDP in billion pesos) ± Year ’03 ’04 ’05 ± GDP, current prices 100 120 140 ± Price increase per year 10% 10% ± Price index in % (’03=100) 100 110 121 ± Price index in pure number 1.0 1.1 1.21 ± GDP, constant prices 100 109.1 127.3 ± How did we get GDP in constant prices (real GDP)? 6 GDP in current prices GDP in constant prices= Price index deflator GDP in current prices '04 = Price index deflator '04 120 = 1.1 =109.1 Using the GDP of the previous year as base, it is possible to get GDP in real prices by using the price increase of the year. Note : Price indexes are always expressed in hundredths or percentage. In calculations above, always use the original index numbers (= price index/100=110/100=1.1). That is, divide price index by 100 first. 109.1

Price deflator In general, the formula for calculating real GDP is given by the following formula. Note: THE PRICE DEFLATOR IS OFTEN A PRICE INDEX. March 26, 2010 Econ. 11 -- Lecture #25 9 , Price deflator= . GDP in constant prices Therefore The price deflator gives a measure of price changes in the economy based on the GDP output accounts.
