Bureua of Economic Analysis (BEA) prepares measures of real GDP and its components in a dollar-denominated form, designated “chained (2009) dollar estimates.” For GDP and most other series, these estimates are computed by multiplying the current-dollar value in 2009 by a corresponding quantity index number and then dividing by 100.
The implicit price deflator (IPD)is calculated as the ratio of the current-dollar value to the corresponding chaineddollar value, multiplied by 100. The values of the IPD are very close to the values of the corresponding chain-type price index for all periods.
