New Consumer Price Index

Posted by Prashant Shah on February 22, 2012

Consumer Price Indices (CPI) measure changes over time in general level of prices of goods and services that households acquire for the purpose of consumption. CPI numbers are widely used as a macroeconomic indicator of inflation, as a tool by governments and central banks for inflation targeting and for monitoring price stability, and as deflators in the national accounts. CPI is also used for indexing dearness allowance to employees for increase in prices. CPI is therefore considered as one of the most important economic indicators.

Classification of Items of Consumption:

After exclusion of non-consumption expenditure from the average monthly consumption expenditure, the remaining items were classified into several consumption groups and subgroups considering Classification of Individual Consumption according to Purpose (COICOP), the standard international classification as well as present classification of items adopted in the existing CPI numbers compiled at national level.
