New York, NY (PRWEB) November 20, 2012
Frontier Data Corp, an emerging and frontier market focused data collection firm, recently collected and analyzed its standard set of ground-level pricing data in Yangon, Myanmar with some surprising results. “After our collection teams gathered over fifty different consumer level price points from various industries, we realized what an impact the repeal of sanctions will have on the average citizen,” said Dr. Anthony Vinci, CEO of Frontier Data Corp (FDC).
“Right now you can buy rice for a dollar a kilogram but a desktop computer sells for over $450 and the iPhone 5 is going for over $1100 in Yangon,” he said, “to put it in perspective, even in Baghdad you can get an iPhone for $600.”
After sending its collection teams across the city to collect data, FDC came up with a number of interesting observations:
“By having teams on the ground and collecting granular data on a weekly basis for a sustained period of time, Frontier Data Corp is uniquely placed to capture real-time economic data in raw form and free of reporting-related manipulations and distortions typical to a transitioning command economy such as Myanmar’s.” said Dr. Vinci.
