1997
2000
Price/unit
Quantity
Price/unit
Quantity
Rice (kilo)
$1.50
60
$2.50
40
Potatoes (kilo)
$2.00
30
$1.20
50
The above table gives data for the price/unit and quantity of Rice and Potatoes
consumed by the average student in 1997 and 2000. Assuming that 1997 is the base
year, calculate the following values.
a) nominal student consumption in 2000 (1 mark)
1 mark: correct setup (formula or numbers): 2.50*40 + 1.20*50= $160
b) the consumer price index for 2000 (3 marks)
1 mark: correct numerator (2.5*60 + 1.2*30) = 186
1 mark: correct denominator = 1.5*60 + 2 * 30 = 150
1 mark: correct answer = 100*186/150 = 124
c) real consumption in 2000 relative to 1997 according to the consumer price index
(1 marks)
1 mark: right answer (or consistent with a) and b)) = $160/124 =$129
d) the total inflation between 1997 and 2000 relative to 1997 (1 mark)
1 mark: (124 –100)/100 = 24 % (or consistent with b)
e) real consumption in 2000 according to the GDP deflator measure using CPI (1 mark)
1 mark: = 160 from 1.5*40 + 2 * 50 [or could also divide Nom by deflator]
f) the GDP deflator for 2000 given 1997 as the base year (3 marks)
1 mark: correct numerator = 2.5*40 + 1.2*50
1 mark: correct denominator = 1.5*40 + 2 * 50
1 mark: correct answer = 100*160/160 = 100
