Table description


This table includes figures on year-on-year developments of expenditure categories of the Harmonised consumer price index (HICP). This table also contains the weighting coefficient. The weighting coefficient shows how much Dutch consumers spend on a product group in relation to their total expenditure.

Furthermore, the table shows the contribution and impact of HICP categories. The contributions of the separate groups add up to the total annual rate of change and show the share of price increases. The impact, on the other hand, answers the question how much higher or lower the annual rate of change would have been, if a specific category would not have been taken into account in calculation. These figures are shown for 141 product groups. Furthermore, 34 combinations of product groups (special aggregates) are displayed.

Data available from: January 2016.

Status of the figures:
The HICP figures in this table are in most cases final immediately upon publication. The figures of the HICP are only marked as provisional in the second publication if it is already known at the time of publication that data are still incomplete, a revision is expected in a later month, or in special circumstances such as the corona crisis.

In most cases, all requested price information is known to Statistics Netherlands when the results are published and no adjustment is made later. However, sometimes certain price information is not available in time and the outcome can be adjusted later. HICP results can then always be revised together with the CPI results, even if they were not published as provisional in the previous month. CPI results are marked as provisional when the index figures are first published, the figures are final the following month.

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

Changes as of 9 June 2022:
The unit of the contribution to annual rate of change and the impact on the annual rate of change has been adjusted to 'percentage point'. Previously, the unit was incorrectly referred to as 'percent' in the table.

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.

All CPI and HICP publications are announced on the publication calendar.

Description topics

Year-on-year change HICP
Change compared with previous year.
Weighting coefficient
The weighting coefficient reflects the share (in hundred thousandths) of the total consumer expenditure.
Contribution to annual rate of change
Contribution is the part that the price development of a product group contributes to the total annual rate of change.
Impact on the annual rate of change
Impact measures how much higher or lower the annual rate of change would be if a product group was to be totally excluded.
