An update to estimates of inflation rates for different types of household in the UK on a Consumer Prices Index including owner occupiers' housing costs (CPIH)-consistent basis.
Release:CPIH-consistent inflation rate estimates for UK household groups: July to September 2020
We have suspended the 2020 CPIH-consistent inflation rates for UK household groups. This is because differences in the subgroups are driven by consumer spending data from 2018, which predates the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. Therefore subgroup estimates would not be representative of the distributional impact of inflation over the Covid-19 period. We will update on our plans for 2020 estimates in due course.
