About us
The focus of the Group is on applied research, particularly in the area of consumer price indices. The Group examines advantages and disadvantages of various concepts, methods and procedures in the context of realistic operational environments, supported by concrete examples whenever possible. Participants are specialists and practitioners who work for, or are advisers to, statistical agencies in different countries or international organisations. The Group meets about every two years.

This website hosts all papers that have been presented at Ottawa Group meetings providing a resource for price statisticians. These papers are available in the Meetings link, located in the left hand navigation or via the Papers link by author, title and organisation. Further resources on price indices can be found in the Consumer Price Index Manual: Theory and Practice (2020).
