Import/Export Price Indexes
Bureau of Labor Statistics > Import/Export Price Indexes > Home > Competitiveness Measures

Data users interested in measuring the competitiveness of U.S. goods in domestic and foreign markets can use the U.S. import and export price indexes. The BLS presents a report and accompanying tables to provide more information for users interested in comparing import price indexes to the corresponding Producer Price Indexes. Additionally, the BLS publishes locality of origin indexes measuring import prices from select countries, regions, and groupings; locality of destination indexes measuring export prices to select countries, regions, and groupings; and U.S. terms of trade indexes measuring the purchasing power of U.S. exports relative to imports for all goods by select localities where both a LOO and LOD index is published.
