Consumer prices;European harmonised price index 2005=100 (HICP), 2002-2015


The harmonised consumer price index (HICP), calculated by Statistics Netherlands, measures the average price changes of goods and services purchased by households. As the harmonised consumer price index is compiled in a similar way in all member states, it makes it possible to compare price developments within the EU properly. This table also shows the index in which the taxes are constant (HICP -CT, Constant Taxes).

Data available from: January 2002 till december 2015

The figures in this table are final.

Changes as of 16 June 2016
None, this table is stopped.

Changes as of 18 December 2015
The figures of the groups 061100 ‘Pharmaceutical products’, 061200 ‘Other medical products, equipment’, 072200 ‘Fuels and lubricants’ and 083000 ‘Telephone and internet services’ over the months June through September 2015 have been corrected. This has no impact on the headline indices.

Changes as of 10 December 2015
On 1 October 2015, the points system for the pricing of rental homes was adjusted by the Dutch national government. As a direct consequence, rental prices of a limited number of dwellings were reduced, which had a downward effect on the average rental price. The effect of this decrease on the rental price indices and imputed rent value could not be determined in time because housing associations announced the impact of rent adjustments only in November. For this reason, the figure of the group 04100 ‘Actual rentals for housing’ over October 2015 has now been adjusted.
