OVERVIEW OF CPI MOVEMENTS
CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
The Consumer Price Index (CPI) measures price change for consumption goods and services acquired by Australian resident households. The Australian Government repealed carbon pricing with effect from 1 July 2014. It is not possible to quantify the impact of removing the carbon price on the price change measured by the CPI.
The CPI Annual Seasonal Re-analysis (ASR) process was conducted in the September quarter 2014. The ASR assesses the CPI seasonal patterns in more detail than is possible in the quarterly processing cycle. The outcomes of the ASR are provided in the Appendix to this issue.
Changes to the seasonally adjusted CPI series do not affect the original CPI index series.
For more information about seasonal adjustment see paragraphs 14 to 17 of the Explanatory notes.
Any discrepancies between totals and sums of components in this publication are due to rounding.
