CPI REVIEW UPDATE
Since 1960, when the CPI was first compiled, the ABS has maintained a program of periodic reviews of the CPI to ensure that it continues to meet community needs. Currently the ABS is undertaking the 16th series review of the Australian CPI. The outcomes of the review will be released on 6 December 2010 in the Information paper: Outcome of the 16th Series Australian Consumer Price Index Review (cat.no. 6469.0).
The issues put up for consideration in this review are outlined in the Information paper: Issues to be considered during the 16th Series Australian Consumer Price Index Review, December 2009 (cat. no. 6468.0). As part of the review process, the ABS invited submissions from the public and the complete list of submissions to the 16th series CPI Review are available on the ABS web site <https://www.abs.gov.au>.
Any discrepancies between totals and sums of components in this publication are due to rounding.
