Source: The data come from the World Bank, a major international organization with headquarters in Washington D.C., and is the most reliable source of international price data available anywhere. We use the latest report from 2005. Therefore the numbers should be interpreted with caution. However, relative price levels across countries do not change rapidly and the numbers are still valid for most countries. That is true especially for the richer countries where prices and exchange rates do not change much over time. We will update the data when new reports become available.
