    Food prices data with HXL tags

  • CSV China - Food Median Prices
    Updated: October 25, 2020

    Food median prices data with HXL tags. Median of all prices for a given commodity observed on different markets is shown, together with the market where it was observed. Data are shortened in multiple ways:

            - Rather that prices on all markets, only median price across all markets is shown, together with the market
              where it has been observed.
            - Only food commodities are displayed (non-food commodities like fuel and wages are not shown).
            - Only data after 2015-01-15 are shown. Missing data are interpolated.
            - Column with shorter commodity names "cmnshort" are available to be used as chart labels.
            - Units are adapted and prices are rescaled in order to yield comparable values (so that they
              can be displayed and compared in a single chart). Scaling factor is present in scaling column.
              Label with full commodity name and a unit (with scale if applicable) is in column "label".
            This reduces the amount of data and allows to make cleaner charts.
