MEPS regional average flat products composite indices are derived from a weighted average of prices for hot rolled coil (HRC), hot rolled plate (HRP), cold rolled coil (CRC), hot dipped galvanised coil (HDG) and electro zinc coated coil (EZ). The weighting is based on the consumption of individual flat products in a specified region. Prices are collected in the appropriate local currency and converted into US dollars to provide a basis for comparison. Indices are calculated by comparing the current price with the corresponding value in January 1997. This base value has an index number of 100.
