Big Mac Index

The Big Mac Index is published by the Economist as an informal way of measuring the Purchasing Power Parity between currencies by comparing the price of a Big Mac in one country (in its currency) with the price of a Big Mac in another country (in its currency). The index was first introduced in September 1986 and has been published annually by the Economist since then.
