Concepts
  • CONSUMER PRICE:  Amount paid by households when acquiring individual goods and services based on monetary transactions. This amount corresponds to the value actually paid at the moment of acquisition and includes all indirect taxes minus subsidies on products, reductions and discounts, applied to consumers in general, and excludes interest and other costs associated with credit purchase.
  • REFERENCE PERIOD:  The length of time for which data are collected, e.g. a specific day, month or year.
Definition The Harmonised Index of Consumer Prices is the most appropriate inflation indicator for comparisons among the different European Union countries. Its development arises from the need, expressed in the Treaty on European Union as regards convergence criteria, to measure inflation on a comparable basis in all Member States.
