Non-Oil Developing Countries: Selected Indicators of Relative Prices, 1979–83
|Median increase1 in consumer price index relative to average increase for industrial countries (percent)||2.7||2.6||3.5||3.8||5.0|
|Real effective exchange rate (1978 = 100)|
|Average terms of trade (1978 = 100)||100.7||96.9||91.9||89.3||91.0|
Use of the median instead of the mean avoids giving a disproportionate weight to a few very high inflation countries.
