From the March 2015 quarter, the producers price index (PPI) and capital goods price index (CGPI) information releases are together in an integrated quarterly business price index (BPI) information release.

The BPI release includes the PPI, CGPI, and farm expenses price index (FEPI).

The PPI measures changes in prices of outputs that generate operating income and inputs that incur operating expense.

The CGPI estimates the overall price change in physical assets that the productive sector acquires or builds.

The FEPI measures price change for fixed inputs of goods and services to the farming industry.
