Abstract

The University of Queensland International Comparison Database (UQICD) has been created as a part of the research project on developing an econometric approach to the construction of consistent panels of purchasing power parities (PPPs), real gross domestic product (GDP) and real incomes. The database developed from the research is made available to users through the dedicated website for UQICD, http://uqicd.economics-legacy.stage.drupal.uq.edu.au.  An enhanced UQICD Version 2.0 is now available for users. This User’s Guide is designed to provide the users with information regarding the data series made available through UQICD. Technical details on the econometric methodology that underpins the series generated and disseminated through UCQICD are provided in a series of appendices.
