This version comprises FGV’s entire system of consumer price indexes, including: IPC-DI, IPC-M, IPC-10, IPC-3i and IPC-C1. Although data are collected every week, computation of variations takes in consideration the average prices collected in the last four weeks up to the date of closing. The interval between the end of collection and its release is only one day—very quick by international standards.
