Consumer Price Indices (CPI) and Retail Price Index (RPI) Item Indices and Price Quotes

Related information

Consumer Price Indices 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 are used in the construction of the UK's inflation figures. Data are 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 (six) are also unavailable.

The data published will cover January 1996 to March 2014. These data are 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 August 2014 CPI is published on 16 September 2014, at which point the detailed data published will be extended to June 2014.
