Main economic institutions [1] already maintains databases of consumer goods and services price across countries, but they don't give easy access to the raw data. Glad to see Expatistan filling this gap.

Yes, there are a number of international institutions collecting this data, and almost every single national statistical office collect price data regularly. Sadly, they tend not to make the raw data available.

And so you start up a project to change that....and then don't make the raw data available? I'm confused.


I looked for it but I don't see any way to get the raw data from it. Can you point it?
