Annual Report on the Consumer Price Index 2017 published

Hong Kong (HKSAR) -      The Annual Report on the Consumer Price Index (CPI) 2017 was published by the Census and Statistics Department (C&SD) today (February 27). The report provides a detailed analysis on the movements of the Composite CPI, CPI(A), CPI(B) and CPI(C) in 2017. These series of CPIs reflect the impacts of consumer price changes on households in different expenditure ranges. The report also presents charts and tables showing movements of the CPIs analysed by commodity/service section and their contributions to the overall change in the indices.
     When analysing the CPIs, Hong Kong has all along adopted a classification system which has evolved over time to meet user needs and local situation. To facilitate international comparison, statistical tables of CPIs based on the Classification of Individual Consumption According to Purpose (COICOP) developed by the United Nations are also presented in the report.
     Apart from statistics on the CPIs, the report contains detailed explanations of the concepts and compilation methods of the CPIs.
