The Effective Exchange Rate Index KIX - Theory and Practice
() and Alek Markowski
Abstract: The world trade patterns have changed over the recent
years, and for Sweden many important trading partners have emerged. The
National Institute of Economic Research has therefore compiled a new
effective exchange rate of index for the Swedish krona, KIX. KIX is a
chain-linked index that includes the currencies of 32 countries. The weight
attached to each country is based on the patterns of international trade in
manufactured goods and commodities. The index includes a number of emerging
economies and gives in this way a more adequate definition of the effective
exchange rate of the krona than the traditional indices. Furthermore, it
allows for the changes in relative importance of Sweden´s trading partners.
The calculation of KIX is now documented in a Working Paper: The Effective
Exchange Rate Index KIX - Theory and Practise.
