Source data

The index of net retail prices is calculated on the basis of 23,000 prices collected from approx. 1,600 shops, companies and institutions throughout Denmark. The prices are collected by questionnaires or by means of price collectors who visit the individual shops. Prices on food and beverages and household items are to a large extent covered by the use of scanner data from supermarket chains. Prices are also obtained via the internet. Most prices are by far collected monthly. For goods and services, where prices typically change less frequently, prices are collected more rarely, for instance quarterly or biannually. The index weights for the detailed indices (elementary aggregate indices) are calculated on the basis of data from the national accounts on final consumption expenditure of households, supplemented by detailed information from the Household Budget Survey. Information from The Danish Ministry of Taxation on indirect taxes and duties is also used in the calculation of the Net Price Index.
