Italy: Currency +/- valuation index

This is a cost of living indicator. The figure shows how much how much a bundle of goods and services costing US$1 in the US would cost in other countries (similar to The Economist's Big Mac Index).

To arrive at the figure, the Global Property Guide takes the difference between the IMF's nominal GDP figures, and their purchasing power parity GDP figures for the latest year available.

Note that currency undervaluation (as measured by PPP) is not a good predictor of future currency movements.

These cost of living indicators refer to data collected annually (for date of collection, see Data FAQ )

Source: calculated using figures from the IMF World Economic Outlook Database


Italy's house price statistics are of moderate quality. The best source of house price time-series is the semi-annual residential property price index from the European Central Bank and the quarterly house price index from Eurostat. General economic statistics for Italy come from the Bank of Italy and the National Institute of Statistics.
