CPI release

Price quote data and item indices that underpin the CPI are now published for the first time, giving users unprecedented access to the detailed data that is used in the construction of the UK's inflation figures. Data is broadly at the geographic level of Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics (NUTS) 1 (for example, South East England, West Midlands, Wales, etc). This level of detail was chosen to ensure that no individual retailer or service provider will be able to be identified and therefore is in line with the assurances given to data providers, and for the same reason, a very small number of item indices (6) are also unavailable.

The data published will cover January 1996 to September 2014. This data is updated once a quarter, with around a 2-month lag with the latest CPI publication. For example, the data will next be updated when the February CPI is published on 24 March 2015, at which point the detailed data published will be extended to December 2014.
