Consumer prices; price index 2015=100


This table contains figures about the price developments of a package of goods and services purchased by the average Dutch household, also known as the consumer price index (CPI). The table also includes the derived consumer price index: this price index excludes the effect of changes in the rates of product-related taxes (e.g. VAT and excise duty on alcohol and tobacco) and subsidies and consumption-related taxes (e.g. motor vehicle tax).

The table also includes the month-on-month and year-on-year changes of the CPI. Annual rate of change can be defined as the year-on-year change of total consumer expenditure. These figures are shown for 372 product groups. Furthermore, 34 combinations of product groups (special aggregates) are displayed in the table. The weighting coefficient shows how much Dutch consumers spend on each product group in relation to their total expenditure. The total weighting is 100,000.

Data available from: January 1996.

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

Following the government measures related to the corona crisis, the sales of products and services in several industries have been halted since March 16. Naturally, this also has consequences for the price observation in these industries. Within Europe, coordination took place on how the price developments in these industries were to be incorporated in the calculations of the HICP. Figures that comprise of estimations for a larger share than half of the article group weight are not shown in the table.
