Abstract

The consumer price index (CPI) measures the rate at which the prices of consumer goods and services are changing over time. It is a key statistic for economic and social policymaking and has substantial and wide-ranging implications for governments, businesses, and households. This important and comprehensive Manual provides guidelines for statistical offices and other agencies responsible for constructing CPIs, and explains in-depth the methods that are used to calculate a CPI. It also examines the underlying economic and statistical concepts and principles needed for making choices in efficient and cost-effective ways, and for appreciating the full implications of those choices.

Abstract

Le guide sur la transparence des recettes des ressources naturelles applique les principes du code de bonnes pratiques en matière de transparence des finances publiques (« le code ») à l'ensemble spécifique de problèmes auxquels sont confrontés les pays dont une part substantielle des revenus provient de telles ressources, ainsi qu'à la nécessité de faire face à la complexité technique et à la volatilité des flux de transactions. Il présente un panorama des bonnes pratiques ou des pratiques optimales généralement admises en matière de gestion transparente des recettes dégagées des ressources naturelles. Il sert de complément au manuel du FMI sur la transparence des finances publiques. Le guide a été revu pour incorporer les changements apportés au code et pour fournir des exemples récents de bonnes pratiques appliquées dans certains pays. Il offre un cadre d'évaluation des questions soulevées plus spécialement par les ressources naturelles dans les évaluations générales de la transparence des finances publiques (y compris les RONC). Ce guide est utilisé par les administrations des pays riches en ressources naturelles, la société civile, les prestataires d'appui technique et les chercheurs et observateurs intéressés par ces questions.

Abstract

La Guía sobre la transparencia del ingreso proveniente de los recursos naturales aplica los principios de la edición revisada del Código del FMI de buenas prácticas de transparencia fiscal ("el Código") al conjunto singular de problemas de transparencia que se les plantean a los países que obtienen una proporción considerable de sus ingresos públicos de los recursos naturales y que deben hacer frente a flujos de transacciones complejos y volátiles. En la Guía se identifican y explican buenas prácticas, o prácticas óptimas, de aceptación general en materia de transparencia en la gestión de los ingresos derivados de los recursos naturales. Esta Guía complementa el Manual de transparencia fiscal del FMI. La Guía se ha revisado para adaptarla al nuevo Código y proporciona ejemplos más recientes de buenas prácticas seguidas por países específicos. Se ha diseñado con el propósito de ofrecer un marco para evaluar cuestiones específicas relacionadas con los recursos naturales en el contexto de las evaluaciones generales de la transparencia fiscal (incluidos los "módulos fiscales" de los informes sobre la observancia de códigos y normas). La Guía es utilizada por autoridades del poder ejecutivo y legislativo de países ricos en recursos naturales, organizaciones de la sociedad civil, entidades que proporcionan respaldo técnico, profesionales del ámbito académico y otros observadores interesados.

Abstract

The Guide on Resource Revenue Transparency applies the principles of the revised IMF Code of Good Practices on Fiscal Transparency (‘the Code’) to the unique set of transparency problems faced by countries that derive a significant share of their revenues from natural resources and need to address complex and volatile transaction flows. The Guide identifies and explains generally recognized good or best practices for transparency of resource revenue management. It supplements the IMF Manual on Fiscal Transparency. The Guide has been revised to reflect the new Code and to provide more recent examples of good practice by individual countries. It is designed to give a framework for assessing resource-specific issues within broader fiscal transparency assessments (including so-called ‘fiscal ROSCs’). The Guide has been used by the governments and legislatures of resource-rich countries, civil societies, providers of technical support, and interested academics and observers.

Abstract

The consumer price index (CPI) measures the rates at which the prices of consumer goods and services are changing over time. It is a key statistic for purposes of economic and social policymaking, especially monetary policy and social policy, and has substantial and wide-ranging implications for governments, businesses, and workers, as well as households. This important and comprehensive manual provides guidelines for statistical offices and other agencies responsible for constructing CPIs and explains in depth the methods that are used to calculate a CPI. It also examines the underlying economic and statistical concepts and priniciples needed for making choices in efficient and cost-effective ways and for appreciating the full implications of those choices. The following international organizations, concerned both with the measurement of inflation and with policies designed to control it, have collaborated on the preparation of this manual: the International Labour Office; the International Monetary Fund; the Organization for Econmomic Co-operation and Development; the Statistical Office of the European Communities (Eurostat); the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe; and the World Bank.

Abstract

El Índice de Precios al Consumidor (IPC) mide la evolución de los precios al consumidor de los bienes y servicios a través del tiempo. Es una estadística clave para formular tanto políticas económicas, especialmente monetarias, como políticas sociales, y tiene consecuencias importantes y diversas para los gobiernos, las empresas, los trabajadores y los hogares. Este exhaustivo manual proporciona pautas para oficinas de estadística y otras agencias responsables de la elaboración del IPC y explica en profundidad los métodos utilizados para calcularlo. También examina los conceptos y principios económicos y estadísticos necesarios para tomar decisiones eficientes en función de los costos y para apreciar las consecuencias de esas elecciones en toda su magnitud. Es una herramienta valiosa para los encargados de formular políticas y los investigadores, especialmente para aquéllos interesados en los números índice. Las siguientes organizaciones internacionales que se interesan en la medición de la inflación y en las políticas para controlarla colaboraron en la preparación de este manual: la Organización Internacional del Trabajo, el Fondo Monetario Internacional, la Organización de Cooperación y Desarrollo Económicos, la Oficina de Estadística de la Comunidad Europea (Eurostat), la Comisión Económica de las Naciones Unidas para Europa y el Banco Mundial. ----------------------- The consumer price index (CPI) measures the rates at which the prices of consumer goods and services are changing over time.
