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:
Since 2012, the standard distinction made in HICP publications between first provisional and later final results no longer applies. This is based on a request submitted by Eurostat. HICP results are only defined as provisional ('preliminary') if - at the moment of publication - it is evident that data are incomplete, will be subject to revision in the next few months or in exceptional circumstances like the corona crisis.

In most cases, all requested information regarding consumer prices is available at Statistics Netherlands when the first results are published and later adjustments are not required. Occasionally, specific data are not available on time and the results can be adjusted at a later stage. In such cases, HICP and CPI data can be revised simultaneously, even if they had no provisional status in the preceding month. When first published, CPI data are defined as provisional and their status will become final in 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 on the first Thursday of the month, except if the first Thursday is the first, second or third day of the month or if there are public holidays prior to and on that Thursday. In that case, new figures will be published on Tuesday after the first Thursday.

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.
