Because there is no producer price index available in Peru, the mission assessed the wholesale price index that has been published since 1920.
The mission team was headed by Edgar Ayales and included Alberto Jiménez de Lucio, Antonio Galicia Escotto, José Carlos Moreno, Lisbeth Rivas (all STA), Dale Smith (Expert), and Mabel Hollstein (STA—Administrative Assistant).
The data dimension—coverage, periodicity, and timeliness of the data—and the advance release calendars of the access dimension have been monitored since July 2000. Other elements of the SDDS are on a self-disclosure basis by subscribers; that is, the subscribers are asked to confirm on a quarterly basis that their descriptions of their practices are accurate.
Information on data quality can be found at the IMF website “Data Quality Reference Site” (http://dsbb.imf.org/dqrsindex.htm).
