Data

  • Consumer price inflation tables

    Measures of monthly UK inflation data including CPIH, CPI and RPI. These tables complement the consumer price inflation time series dataset.

  • Consumer price inflation item indices and price quotes

    Price quote data and item indices that underpin consumer price inflation statistics are now published, giving users unprecedented access to the detailed data that is used in the construction of the UK's inflation figures. With effect from January 2017 Consumer price inflation publication, these data are published on a monthly basis showing the latest month.

  • Consumer Price Inflation time series dataset

    Comprehensive database of time series covering measures of inflation data including CPIH, CPI and RPI.

The United Kingdom Statistics Authority has designated these statistics as National Statistics, in accordance with the Statistics and Registration Service Act 2007 and signifying compliance with the Code of Practice for Official Statistics.

Designation can be broadly interpreted to mean that the statistics:

  • meet identified user needs
  • are well explained and readily accessible
  • are produced according to sound methods
  • are managed impartially and objectively in the public interest

Once statistics have been designated as National Statistics it is a statutory requirement that the Code of Practice shall continue to be observed.
