Abstract
:
Trade index numbers are useful indicators for measuring movements in price and volume of Hong Kong’s external merchandise trade. All along, the Census and Statistics Department (C&SD) has adopted a fixed base year in the compilation of trade index numbers, with rebasing conducted every 10 years. In order to provide a better measure of real growth of trade aggregates, C&SD has introduced a new series of trade index numbers compiled using the annually re-weighted chain linking approach to replace the current series compiled under the fixed base approach.
