consumer price index - tabacco, alcohol and fuel costs excluded


Explanation:
CONSUMER PRICE INDEX (CPI)/COST-OF LIVING INDEX(US) - A measure of price changes in consumer goods and services used to identify periods of inflation or deflation.

www.investorama.com/glossary/term.html?consumer price index...

Consumer Price Index

What exactly? An index (1982-84 = 100) that measures the change in cost of a representative basket of goods and services such as food, energy, housing, clothing, transportation, medical care, entertainment and education.

Source: Labor Department

Frequency: Monthly

Released when? Around the 15th of the month at 8:30 Eastern. Data for prior month.

Market importance: High. Timely. All inflation measures routinely move markets.

Other notes: (a) The "core" CPI excludes the often-volatile food and energy sectors and gives a clearer picture of the underlying inflation trend. (b) The CPI for medical care is used to help predict the benefit costs portion of the employment cost index. The CPI for gasoline is used to predict the gasoline stations portion of the retail sales report. The CPI for new vehicles is used to predict the vehicle portions of the retail sales and personal income and consumption reports. (c) The headline number is the percent change from the prior month, but we also graph the year-on-year change. That way you can see the rate at which consumer inflation is increasing or decreasing.

Het indexcijfer van de consumptieprijzen meet de evolutie van de prijzen van de door een gemiddeld gezin aangekochte goederen en diensten. Sinds het begin van de eeuw wordt het berekend als de verhouding tussen deze prijzen op een gegeven ogenblik en de gemiddelde prijs van diezelfde producten en diensten van het basisjaar. Een historisch overzicht is verkrijgbaar als Excel-bestand.

De GEZONHEIDSINDEX wordt op dezelfde manier berekend, maar ZONDER ALCOHOLISCHE DRANKEN, TABAK en BRANDSTOFFEN(benzine en diesel). Sinds 1994 vervangt hij het indexcijfer van de consumptieprijzen voor de indexering van de huurprijzen en bezoldigingen.

CPI is used to monitor inflation/deflation. Each country has some special details when it comes to the CPI calculation. The best I could do is to add "no alcohol, tabacco and fuel" part as GEZONDHEIDSINDEX exists only in Belgium and the Netherlands.
