ABOUT THIS RELEASE

A comprehensive description of the Australian Consumer Price Index (CPI) -- what the index measures, the goods and services included in it, where the information on prices comes from, how the index is calculated, and how the statistics can be used. It also provides some insight into the kinds of problems the ABS encounters in compiling the CPI and explains how these are dealt with.
