  • Geographic localization
  • Special aggregates
  • REFERENCE PERIOD:  The length of time for which data are collected, e.g. a specific day, month or year.
  • 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.
Definition The average change in the past twelve months compares the level of the average price index of the past twelve months with the preceding twelve months. As a moving average, this rate of change is less sensitive to one-off price changes. The value obtained in December is being used as a reference at the social agreement level, and is thus associated with the annual inflation rate.
