Post subject:  Which Producer Price Index Should I Use?

I'm trying to adjust 2009 prices to the 2002 prices used in the model. I realized that the Producer Price Index offers you a PPI for either industry data or commodity data:

In terms of this model, which one should we use? Based on an earlier forum post I think I should use the commodity data PPI tables, but I just wanted to check.

Thanks.

Could you also use the PCE Deflator instead of PPI?
