The Center for International Microeconomic Prices is a public data and research dissemination portal. The goal is to build the authorative compliation of absolute (domestic currency) micro-price data at the level of international cities and below (e.g. outlets, firms and so forth). The Center also sponsors occasional conferences and workshops on international price determination and related topics in international trade and macroeconomics. We welcome contributions of other researchers whether it be research on international micro-prices and/or data archives. Some of public archives made available here have been supported by grants from the National Science Foundation. The grant numbers and principal investigators are identified on the sub-pages where those data are found. The content published hereon reflect those of the authors and contributors and not the view of the National Science Foundation.
