Dataset is not available.

This table shows the consumer price index for all households (CPI), split up into an index for frequent "out-of-pocket" purchases (FROOPP) and less frequent or "non-out-of-pocket" purchased items (non-FROOPP). Frequent purchased items are purchases that are typically done at least monthly. Out-of-pocket purchases are those that are considered to be typically paid for by the consumer directly and actively. This table also includes the monthly and yearly price developments.

The FROOPP and non-FROOPP are special extracts of the CPI. The corresponding CPI weights and prices are used to calculate both indices. The segmentation used is derived from the FROOPP-classification of Eurostat.

Data available from: January 2006 till December 2015

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 figures of the groups 04100 ‘Actual rentals for housing’ and 04200 ‘Imputed rent value’ over October 2015 have now been adjusted.

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.

When will new figures be published?
