CONSUMER PRICE INDEX

The all groups consumer price index (CPI) for Brisbane increased by 5.1% in the 12 months to June quarter 2008, compared to a 4.5% rise in the weighted average of the eight capital cities. The higher result in Brisbane is largely due to stronger than average contributions from housing, transportation and clothing and footwear.

Brisbane's CPI rose by 1.7% between the March quarter 2008 and the June quarter 2008. This was the highest of all the capital cities and was 0.2 percentage points higher than the weighted average of the eight capital cities (1.5%). Deposit and loan facilities and automotive fuel were the main contributors in all cities.
