ICT Asset Prices: Marshaling Evidence into New Measures

This paper is a supplement to our recent paper, "ICT Prices and ICT Services: What do they tell us about Productivity and Technology?” (EPWP #16-05). It provides the sources and methods used to construct national accounts-style price deflators for the major components of ICT investment—communications equipment, computer equipment, and software—that were presented and analyzed in that paper. The ICT equipment measures described herein were also used in Byrne, Fernald, and Reinsdorf (2016).
