ESTIMATING THE VARIANCE OF FOOD PRICE INFLATION

Noel Blisard and James R. Blaylock

Journal of Agricultural and Applied Economics, 1993, vol. 25, issue 1, 8

Abstract: Stochastic index theory views each commodity price change as an independent observation on the rate of inflation that can be estimated by averaging over all prices. Our methodology estimates both the overall rate of inflation and relative price changes along with standard errors.
