The OECD, Eurostat, and 47 participating countries work together in establishing purchasing power parities, or PPPs, in order to compare the price and volume levels of the GDPs. This programme is called the Eurostat-OECD PPP Programme. The manual gives a complete, detailed and up-to-date description of the functioning of the programme. This includes its organisation, the various surveys carried out by participating countries and the ways PPPs are calculated and disseminated. It also provides guidance on the use of PPPs.

Collective services

The services that general government provides to households comprise individual services and collective services. Individual services are the services that general government provides to specific identifiable households – that is, services, such as health and education, which are consumed by households individually. Collective services are those that general government provides simultaneously to all members of the community – that is, services, such as defence and public order and safety, which are consumed by households collectively. The principal individual services are covered elsewhere in the manual: health in Chapter 7 and education in Chapter 8. Collective services are covered in this chapter.
