The Effective Exchange Rate Index KIX - Theory and Practice
AbstractThe world trade patterns have changed over the recent years, and for Sweden many important trading partners have emerged. The National Institute of Economic Research has therefore compiled a new effective exchange rate of index for the Swedish krona, KIX. KIX is a chain-linked index that includes the currencies of 32 countries. The weight attached to each country is based on the patterns of international trade in manufactured goods and commodities. The index includes a number of emerging economies and gives in this way a more adequate definition of the effective exchange rate of the krona than the traditional indices. Furthermore, it allows for the changes in relative importance of Sweden´s trading partners. The calculation of KIX is now documented in a Working Paper: The Effective Exchange Rate Index KIX - Theory and Practise.
