Table 28.2 presents All groups index numbers for each of the eight capital cities and for the weighted average of the eight capital cities, together with percentage changes.
The capital city indexes measure price movements over time in each city individually. They do not measure differences in price levels between cities. For example, the index for Adelaide in 2001-02 of 137.2, compared with the corresponding index for Perth of 133.1, does not mean that prices in Adelaide are higher than those in Perth. It simply means that, since the reference base period (1989-90), prices in Adelaide have increased by a greater percentage than those in Perth (37.2% compared with 33.1%).
