Computation of the Daily CPI in Turkey

Computation of the Daily CPI in Turkey

The Daily CPI is a lagged, daily interpolation of the monthly published CPI. 

All countries issuing government capital inflation-indexed bonds calculate Daily CPIs. Daily CPIs can be one to four month lagged, daily interpolations. 

Turkey uses a three-month lagged daily interpolation of its monthly published CPI.

Turkey can use the above Daily CPI to implement Capital Maintenance in Units of Constant Purchasing Power in terms of a Daily CPI during low inflation as authorised in IFRS in the Conceptual Framework (2010), Par. 4.59 (a) which states:

"Financial capital maintenance can be measured in either nominal monetary units or units of constant purchasing power." 

CMUCPP in terms of a Daily CPI would automatically maintain the constant purchasing power of capital (equity) constant for an indefinite period of time - ceteris paribus - in all entities that at least break even in real value at all levels of inflation and deflation.
