This paper examines trends in the unit prices of manufactured imports into the European Union (EU) in the period 1988-2002. This is undertaken at a high level of disaggregation, and it is this decomposition which we believe has important implications both for a range of bodies of economic analysis and for policy. The analyses undertaken in this paper confirm that disaggregation matters in helping to identify unit-price trends. We have also shown that unit-price trends vary with the type of economy exporting into Europe and the type of product being exported, and that these results are robust at high levels of disaggregation.
