New PPP weights for country group data|
The weights for country group data in the forthcoming WEO database and the January WEO Update incorporate the new purchasing power exchange rates released by the World Bank in December 2007. The new weights reduced the global growth estimates as discussed in this IMF Survey article.
Please check next week for the updated WEO database and more information contained in the April 2008 WEO publication.
