## Dataset is not available.

This table contains the annual rates of change of the CPI from the moment they were first published. The annual rate of change reflects changes in prices of consumer goods and services in a certain month compared with the same month in the previous year; it is the year on-year change of the consumer price index.

This table also contains the derived series for the annual rate of change. This is based on the normal series but without the effect of changes in the rates of product-related taxes (for instance VAT and excise duty on alcohol and tobacco) and subsidies. The derived series answers the question: how would prices have changed if the tax rates remained the same?

CPI figures are published every month. In addition, an annual figure is published at the end of the year. The CPI of a calendar year is calculated as the average of the indices of the twelve months of that year.

Data available from: January 1963

Status of the figures:
When first published, the figures are provisional. Their status becomes final simultaneously with the second publication about the same month. Differences between the provisional and final figures are caused by source material that has become available after the provisional publication.

Changes compared with previous version:
Data on the most recent period have been added and/or adjustments have been implemented.

When will new figures be published?
New figures will usually be published between the first and second Thursday of the month following on the reporting month. The figures of the previous reporting month then become final.

All CPI publications are announced on the publication calendar.

## Description topics

Annual rate of change
The annual rate of change is the change in prices of consumer goods and services in a certain month compared with the same month in the previous year. This answers the question: by how much has the consumer prices increased or decreased for an average Dutch household in the last twelve months?
Annual rate of change, derived
The derived annual rate of change is the same as normal annual rate of change (CPI), but excluding the effects of changes in the rates of product-related taxes (e.g. VAT and excise on alcohol and tobacco) and subsidies. The derived CPI answers the question of how would prices have changed if the tax rates had remained the same as in the base year.
