Abstract

Exchange rate pass-through, which is the degree of reflection of exchange rate movements on domestic inflation, is a crucial phenomenon especially for the developing economies. In this paper we study the exchange rate pass-through for the Pakistani economy from 2008 to 2019. Using quarterly data for consumer prices and the Pakistani Rupee – USD exchange rate and a simple econometric framework, we estimate the pass-through coefficients to various subgroup and item indices within Pakistani household consumption basket. Our findings indicate that pass-through behavior is limited to only some items, motivating us to develop an exchange rate sensitive items index to allow for better forecasting performance on the side of policymakers.
