Annual rate of change HICP; The Netherlands, Euro area and Europe, 2015=100

Table description

This table includes all price index numbers calculated according to the Harmonised consumer price index (HICP) for the Netherlands, the Euro area and the European Union (EU). In all member states of the EU, these indices are compiled in a similar manner to facilitate comparison between the various EU countries.

The table also includes the harmonised consumer price index for the Euro area. This index figure reflects the average price increase/decrease in the countries which have adopted the euro as their currency. The table also includes the European consumer price index, i.e. the harmonised consumer price index for the member states of the European Union.

Data available from: January 1996.

Status of the figures:
The HICP results for the Netherlands in this table are in most cases final immediately upon publication. At that time, the results for the euro area are still based on the flash estimate and are characterized as provisional. A month later, these figures become final.

The results of the HICP are only marked as provisional 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.

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.
