6.4 Due to household income characteristics not being available from the HFCE data, it had been proposed to continue to re–weight the SLCIs six–yearly using HES data. The ABS is continuing to investigate methods to annually re–weight the SLCIs, which was raised by key stakeholders in consultations as further research to consider. Further information on the re–weighting of the SLCIs will be published in 2018.
6.5 In relation to the Deposit and loan facilities (indirect charges) index, also known as Financial Intermediation Services Indirectly Measured (FISIM), the ABS will continue to engage internationally to resolve the methodological challenges associated with its measurement. Although it had been intended to reintroduce FISIM into the headline CPI in time for the 17th series, this has not been possible due to the lack of an internationally accepted methodology for its measurement. The ABS will continue to produce the analytical series ‘All groups CPI including Deposit and loan facilities (indirect charges)’. Once the methodology and data are sufficiently robust to produce high quality estimates, the ABS will consider reintroducing FISIM into the headline CPI.
