Description of work
Obtain measures of wage levels by gender, age (3-4 categories), and level of educational attainment (3 or more categories).
Obtain expenditure PPPs for seven asset categories (IT equipment, communication equipment, other machinery, transport equipment, software, non-res. structures, dwellings) and adjustment for user cost differences across countries.
Sources PPP measures are ICOP database, PRODCOM, mixed with expenditure PPPs from Eurostat/OECD ICP (corrected for margins) and I/O tables; for wages EU Earnings Survey and Luxembourg Income Study.
Methodological research may focus on topics including multilateralisation of PPP measures; consistency between price indices and PPPs; quality issues for international comparisons (in particular durable and investment goods); and relationship between output and input PPPs of similar items. Determination of the definitive research agenda depends on key priorities emerging from data construction (during months 2 and 9).
