Tratamiento de una Base de Datos Internacional: Homogeneización y Conversión en Paridades de Poder de Compra


  • José Alberto Molina Chueca

    (Departamento de Análisis Económico. Universidad de Zaragoza.)


En este trabajo planteamos y solucionamos los problemas que aparecen al trabajar con una base de datos internacional que contiene series temporales de distintas magnitudes para cada país. En primer lugar, homogeneizamos las series reales expresadas en distintos años base a un mismo año de referencia; en segundo lugar, agregamos las series y, por último, convertimos las series nacionales en precios internacionales utilizando Paridades de Poder de Compra. In this paper we pose and solve the problems which appear when we work with an international base of data which contain time-series of different magnitudes for each country. First, we convert the series at constant prices express in several years to one benchmark year; second, we aggregate the magnitudes and, finally, we convert the national series in international lprices using Purchasing Power Parities.
