This annual publication provides a detailed analysis of the major price movements of consumer goods and services during the reference year. This is useful for understanding the inflation that affects consumers. For each of the four series of Consumer Price Index (CPI), namely the Composite CPI, CPI(A), CPI(B) and CPI(C), the movements of the all-item indices and the indices of the 9 commodity/service sections are analysed. This publication also contains charts which depict the movements of the CPIs, tables on the seasonally adjusted CPIs, and descriptions of the concepts and computation method of the CPIs. In particular, this report gives a brief account of the source of data (including survey data and administrative data) as well as the CPI computation framework at Appendix III, IV and V.
