Producer Price Index (PPI)

The Producer Price Index (PPI) measures average changes in prices received by domestic producers for their output. Published by the Bureau of Labor statistics, PPI is a good measure of inflation in the economy. As producer prices rise, they have to pass those costs along to their customers, which ultimately raises prices for consumers. It’s one of the oldest statistical indicators published on the US economy.
