To make comparisons and observe changes, data are presented for the years 2015-2020 and for the basic year of 2015 (2015 = 100).
This publication is based on the collection of prices of local agricultural outputs in Kosovo. Data collection is done in the markets, farms and other places where prices of agricultural outputs can be collected.
The outputs that form the basis for the price index of agricultural outputs are divided into two main groups: crop and animal outputs. Within crop outputs, prices are aggregated for the following groups: cereals, fodder crops, vegetables, potatoes and fruits.
In animal outputs prices are accumulated for animals and animal products. Within animal, prices are collected for four categories of animals: cattle, sheep, pigs and chickens. These prices are based on the live weight of the animals. Within animal outputs, prices have been collected for: milk, eggs and honey. All prices are calculated in Euro and the units of measurement are in kg, liter and piece.
