Price-setting Microdata Analysis Network (PRISMA)

The PRISMA network was set up by the European System of Central Banks (ESCB) to deepen the understanding of price-setting behaviour and inflation dynamics in the EU, with a view to gaining new insights into a key element of monetary policy transmission.

To this end, PRISMA collects and studies different kinds of micro-data, including data underlying official price indexes such as the HICP (Harmonized Index of Consumer Prices) and the PPI (Producer Price Index), scanner data, and online prices.
