Abstract

La pandemia del covid-19 alteró el patrón de consumo de los hogares a nivel mundial. Estos cambios no los incorpora el Índice de Precios al Consumidor (IPC) porque dicha medición se basa en una canasta fija de bienes, lo cual podría estar subestimando la inflación en Colombia. En este documento se hace un ejercicio utilizando una estructura de ponderaciones alternativa para evaluar los cambios que podría presentar el cálculo en el ipc durante el periodo de la pandemia. Los resultados muestran que los precios al consumidor estarían aumentando más rápido de lo que indican las medidas del IPC con ponderaciones fijas
