The composition of the CPI basket is based on the pattern of household expenditure in the 'weighting base period', which is 1998-99 for the 14th Series CPI. Measures of expenditure are obtained primarily from the ABS' HES. The HES data, modified for known instances of under-reporting (the most notable being for alcohol and tobacco), are then used to derive a weight for each of the 89 expenditure classes. The weights for the 14th Series groups and subgroups based on June quarter 2000 prices are shown in table 28.1.
