The use of Supermarket Scanner data in the Luxembourg Consumer Price Index
15-02-2018 | STATEC


In 2018, scanner data will be used for the first time in the compilation of the consumer price index. Scanner data are files that contain, for each individual item, the value of sales and the number of units sold in an outlet during a certain period of time. This paper presents the methodological approach adopted by STATEC to use this new data source.
