Methodological sheet
Consumer Price Index

The Consumer Price Index (CPI) is a statistical measure of the evolution of the prices of goods and services consumed by the population residing in family dwellings. The set of goods and services that satisfy the shopping basket is basically obtained from the consumption made by the families and the importance of each one of them in the calculation of the CPI; which is determined by such consumption. Since January 2009, the CPI methodology has been completely innovated with the introduction of structural and conjuncture changes in the current market situation and in the future, which have made this new CPI a more dynamic and representative indicator at the national level, adaptable to the evolution of the market and the specific characteristics of each region. Price variations are observed in five major cities (Malabo, Bata, Ebibeyin, Mongomo and Evinayong) of the country whose inhabitants represented 58.4% of the national population. The National CPI is the result of the weighted average of the monthly CPI of the five cities, whose weights are as follows: 35.7% for Malabo, 38.9% for Bata, 10.3% for Ebibeyin, 9.0% For Mongomo and 6.2% for Evinayong.

  • Type of survey: continued monthly
  • Base period: 2008
  • Reference period of weights: December 2006
  • Sample of provinces: 5
  • Number of articles: 484
  • Number of observations: approximately 5,796 monthly prices
  • Functional classification: 12 groups, 38 subgroups, 88 classes and 120 subclasses
  • General method of calculation: Laspeyres not chained
  • Method of collection: interviewing agents in establishments and centralized collection for
    special items.

The Equatorial Guinea Consumer Price Index is a Laspeyres-type index, covering all households defined in the System of National Accounts SCN93. The reference population is the set of resident households in the cities of Malabo, Bata, Ebebiyin, Mongomo and Evinayong. The base period is the year 2008, during which approximately 70,000 prices were observed in the agglomerations defined for the national CPI field, which represents just over 58 percent of the national population, distributed in both regions of the country. The interviewing agents carry out the collection of prices in the commercial and serviceestablishments as well as in the local administrative units and of the government that by those that respond according to the fundamental principles of the Law No 3/2001 of date 17 of May, Regulator of the Activity Statistics in the Republic of Equatorial Guinea. One of the key quality features is that products sold in local units are purchased for weighing and converting them into international units.

For the collection of prices, two categories of questionnaires are used: Questionnaires of type Hare for the collection of varieties called heterogeneous; The type O questionnaires are used to make purchases of products called homogeneous. The rates of services and fees applied to certain prices are observed in the invoices administrative documents that indicate it; You can consult the services concerned by direct interviews or by telephone in case of need. The dwellings form a subset of thirty, classified into four strata previous minute studies conducted during the base period. Products considered seasonal are treated according to the harmonized methodology in times of scarcity. The replacement of products and / or points of sale is also done according to the harmonized methodology .

The basket or basket of purchases and weights of basic products come from the Equatoguinean Household Survey (EEH-2006) carried out throughout the national scope in December of 2006. For the structure of the basket the African consumption nomenclature (NCAC) adopted for the construction of the indexes at CEMAC prices in 2000, derives from the international nomenclature COICOP (Classification of Individual Consumption by Purpose) of 12 divisions or functions that are listed below:
