Real effective exchange rate based on ULC, 42 industrialised countries

Description: the real effective exchange rate (REER) aims to assess a country's (or currency area's) price or cost competitiveness relative to its principal competitors in international markets. Changes in cost and price competitiveness depend not only on exchange rate movements but also on cost and price trends. This REER is deflated by the unit labour cost index (ULC) against a panel of 42 industrialised countries. Double export weights are used to calculate REERs, reflecting not only competition in the home markets of the various competitors, but also competition in export markets elsewhere. A rise in the index means a loss of competitiveness.
