Foreign trade prices

The price indices for imports and exports of goods are calculated monthly by the Federal Statistical Office. They show the changes in prices of goods that are traded between Germany and other countries. The results are formally presented as Laspeyres price indices: they represent price measures weighted with their share in the foreign trade statistics in the base year.

Seasonally and calendar-adjusted time series are provided in addition to the unadjusted figures. Real-time data are also available.
