The PBLCI combines the Age pensioner and Other government transfer recipient households. The ABS currently publishes these indexes quarterly in Selected Living Cost Indexes (cat. no. 6467.0).
The 17th series SLCIs will contain new household expenditure weighting patterns (using 2015-16 Household Expenditure Survey (HES) data and data from other sources). The 17th series SLCIs will be introduced in respect of the December quarter 2017 and will be linked to the 16th series at the September quarter 2017. As the SLCIs are derived using information from the CPI, they will be impacted by changes as a result of the introduction of the 17th series CPI. For more information regarding the 17th series CPI, please refer to Information Paper: Introduction of the 17th Series Australian Consumer Price Index, 2017 (cat. no. 6470.0.55.001).
This data cube contains detailed 17th series weighting patterns by group, sub–group and expenditure class for each household type. It also includes the average weekly household expenditure (in September quarter 2017 prices) for each of the household types and a comparison between the 16th and 17th series weights.
For the 17th series, weighted average of eight capital cities expenditure estimates have been used in deriving the weights for all population sub–groups, consistent with the price collection and weighting pattern used for the CPI. For Self–funded retirees, this represents a change from the 16th series, where the weights were derived using national expenditures.
