At the All groups level, the CPI rose in all capital cities during the June quarter 2013.
The housing group was the most significant positive contributor to the All groups quarterly movement, recording rises in seven of the eight capital cities. The largest movement was recorded in Darwin (+1.4%) driven by increases in rents and new dwelling purchase by owner–occupiers. Adelaide (–0.9%) was the only city to record a fall for the housing group, due to the seasonal switch to off–peak pricing for electricity.
The health group was the second most significant positive contributor to the All groups quarterly movement, recording rises in all capital cities. The largest movements were recorded in Adelaide (+2.9%) and Hobart (+2.6%), mainly due to rises in medical and hospital services.
The most significant negative contributor to the quarterly movement was the transport group, recording falls in all capital cities with the exception of Darwin. The largest city movements were recorded in Melbourne (–1.6%), Adelaide (–1.2%) and Brisbane (–1.2%) driven by falls in automotive fuel.
The recreation and culture group was the second most significant negative contributor to the All groups quarterly movement, recording falls in seven cities. Hobart (–2.5%) recorded the largest fall, driven by decreases in domestic holiday travel and accommodation.
Over the twelve months to the June quarter 2013, the All groups CPI rose in all capital cities with the largest positive movement recorded in Darwin (+3.9%). Hobart (+1.8%) recorded the smallest rise over the twelve months to the June quarter 2013.
