Table description


This table presents the Consumer price index (CPI) with reference year 1900 = 100. This index series is an estimation and has been constructed by multiplying the year-on-year mutations of several index series from different reference periods with the overlapping index from the previous reference period. The index shows the price change of the goods and services purchased by an average Dutch household in one year. Annual rate of change is measured as the year on-year change of the CPI, expressed as a percentage. The annual rate of change in this series may differ from the officially published annual rate of change as a result of rounding differences.

Data available from: 1900

Status of the figures:
The yearly figures are provisional when first published. Definitive figures are provided in the second version. Disparities between provisional and definitive figures must be attributed to new or updated source material that has become available.

Changes compared with previous version:

Description topics

CPI
Consumer price index.
The Consumer price index (CPI) measures the average price changes of goods and services purchased by an average household.
This index has been constructed by linking several index series with different base years.
Annual rate of change
Annual rate of change is measured as the year-on-year change of the CPI, expressed as a percentage. The annual rate of change is an indication of the price increase or decrease of a basket of goods and services purchased by an average Dutch household in one year. The basket is based on the spending pattern of an average household.
The annual rate of change of this index may diverge from the official annual rate of change published since 1963 due to rounding differences.
