Our Methodology

Our used vehicle price index and forecast data provide time-series price measurements of a fixed pool of vehicles (or the “same” vehicles), with changes based predominantly on contemporary and expected market conditions. This process eliminates nearly all bias that could come from fluctuations in vehicle age (e.g., more younger vehicles entering the market) or vehicle mix (e.g., more expensive trucks entering the market).

Our methodology is as follows:

Derive baseline data from our proprietary database of auction transactions.

Filter out non-representative sales, including those for vehicles with abnormally high mileage and extreme prices.

Adjust mileage to represent the typical level for each vehicle’s age.

Weight the data from the vehicle level up to segment and industry levels to generate a monthly aggregated index value.

Aggregate vehicle-level indices to produce industry and segment-specific depreciating series.

Control for depreciation based on statistically derived depreciation estimates and make seasonal adjustments.
