shlee213 World CPI calculation methodology
I am looking at your world CPI time series through the WEO Database.
I wonder how it is calculated. I have tried to find notes, or methodology PDFs within the site, couldn't find it.

It's sure that world CPI is not a nominal-GDP weighted average of individual countries or regions.
Hope you can provide appropriate answer for this.

Thank you for your question. We provide a discussion of how we aggregate CPI for country groups in our WEO Database FAQ page.

Let us know if you have any other questions.
