Consumer Prices Index (CPI) on Passport (GMID)

Passport (formerly GMID) from Euromonitor International is an great source of global market, industry and country data. This includes macroeconomic data such as the consumer prices index for different countries.

On Passport the variable is named “Index of Consumer Prices” so just searching for “CPI” does not find it.

To get the forecast values for future years you need to select Change Time Series from the left-hand side menu and add the additional years that you want. The forecast values appear in italics as in the screenshot below.

Alternative sources

Passport (formerly GMID) from Euromonitor International is by no means the only database that provides CPI and other macroeconomic data. Other sources include Bloomberg, Datastream, and Global Financial Database. Consumer prices indices are calculated by various providers e.g. national sources (United Kingdom Office for National Statistics), OECD, IMF, and the World Bank. Quandl is one easy way of searching these free online sources.
