__ The base year for the WCU2005 series is the year in which the benchmark currency basket and the WCU are both equal to US$1. The base year for the WCU2015 series is the year in which the benchmark currency basket and the WCU are both equal to US$1. 

 

The WCU2005 and the WCU2015 and the associated benchmark currency baskets are both reweighted every year with GDP data two years ago.

With inflation, WCU generally will be worth more in nominal terms, i.e., more than US$1 after the base year, and less than US$1 before the base year.
