These tables have been specifically put together to cover prices for housing items collected in the CPI. They are presented as a quarterly time series covering 1994 to 2004.
The Consumers Price Index (CPI) is a measure of the price change of goods and services purchased by private New Zealand households.
Often used as a measure of inflation, it covers prices for:
- Household operation
- Tobacco and alcohol
- Personal and health care
- Recreation and education
- Credit services
The CPI is produced quarterly from prices gathered in a range of surveys in 15 urban areas. Its base (=1000) is currently the June 1999 quarter.
