APPENDIX 1 SPECIAL AND ANALYTICAL PRICE INDEX SERIES


INTRODUCTION


Various series are presented in tables 8, 9, and 10 of Consumer Price Index, Australia (cat. no. 6401.0) that are helpful for analytical purposes. As a result of the introduction of the 15th Series Australian CPI, there have been some changes to the groups, subgroups and expenditure classes contributing to each of the special series. Some of the compiled series are self-explanatory, such as 'All groups excluding Food'. This appendix describes the composition of each of the less straightforward special series.



GOODS AND SERVICES

The following table shows, for each CPI group, which expenditure classes have been classified as goods and which have been classified as services. In aggregate, 63 expenditure classes, accounting for 58 per cent of the CPI by weight, have been classified as goods. The remaining 27 expenditure classes, accounting for approximately 42 per cent of the CPI by weight, have been classified as services.
