Changes to this release date

  • Previous date:
    7 December 2018
    Reason for change:
    Unfortunately, due to problems with the ONS website on the morning of Friday 7 December we were unable to publish the article ‘CPIH historical series 1988 to 2004’. We now aim to publish the article and accompanying data tables by Friday 14 December at the latest. We will update the time series data on our website alongside the publication of the Consumer Price Inflation bulletin on Wednesday 19 December. A pdf download of the article was made available on the [ONS back-up website][1], and we will continue to make this available to users until the full publication is available. We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused. [1]: https://backup.ons.gov.uk/
