The Producer Price Index, PPI, is an economic indicator and a price index that measures the average change in the selling prices received by producers (domestic) for their output. Products and some services prices are included in the PPI (Imports are not included).

The Producer Price Index, previously known as the Wholesale Price Index, is reported by many countries and is considered an important economic indicator. The PPI Index is a good predictor of the future value of the CPI (Consumer Price Index - Historical data). In fact, a rise in the PPI Index indicates that retailers are buying goods and commodities at a higher price. This increases their costs and consequently they will raise the price of the products they sell and this will be reflected in the CPI Index later (Cost increases will be passed on to customers).

The Producer Price Index is an inflationary indicator. It is published by the U.S. Department of Labor - Bureau of Labor Statistics and downloaded by this item from the Federal Reserve Bank of St.Louis website.
The data or time-series, which will be saved and stored under the "^Producer_Price_Index" name, is updated monthly and is not seasonally adjusted. It includes all the Commodities and it spans from the beginning of 1913 to present. The reference bar, which is equal to 100, is chosen to be in June 1982.
