Commodity List

The selection of food commodities is based on the International Comparison Program (ICP) product list and include items such as staple grains, staple foods, as well as various fuels.

Data collectors can submit the commodity prices either in local currency or in USD. The default is set to local currency, however, the collector can change it to USD. Besides, a set of common units of measurement is defined for each commodity. For instance, three different units of measurement is defined for White Rice: 500g, 1kg and 2kg. The Data Collection Platform converts the provided information to a recommended base unit (highlighted in bold) automatically for comparability purpose. The automated conversion minimizes possible human errors in calculations, and at the same time, allows our users to easily compare and review food prices collected across different regions in a county or across multiple countries.
