Details

The Consumer Price Index (CPI) is a measure of household inflation and includes statistics about price change for categories of household expenditure. Price indexes published by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) provide summary measures of the movements in various categories of prices over time. They are published primarily for use in Government economic analysis. Price indexes are also often used in contracts by businesses and government to adjust payments and/or charges to take account of changes in categories of prices.
