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.
  • RESIDENT POPULATION:  The persons who regardless of the fact that at the moment of observation ' 0:00 a.m. of the reference day ' are present or absent in a given housing unit, this unit being where they live during most of the year with their family, or where they have all or most of their belongings.
Definition The year-on-year change compares the level of the variable between the current month and the same month a year earlier. In the face of a stable seasonal pattern, this rate of change is not affected by this type of swings. However, it may be influenced by effects in one (or both) of the months compared.

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.
