This paper provides information about a new set of price indexes that measure the inflation experience of groups of households.
What HLPIs are
Household living-costs price indexes (HLPIs) provide new insights into the inflation experienced by 13 different household groups:
- income quintiles (five groups)
- expenditure quintiles (five groups)
We publish an all-households HLPI for comparison.
