Household living-costs price indexes – decisions after public consultation presents decisions we've made about developing a new set of price indexes to measure the inflation experience of groups of households – household living-costs price indexes (HLPIs).
The decisions follow public consultation on three topics:
- how we define the household groups
- how we combine household expenditure patterns
- how we treat interest and insurance.
See Household-living costs price indexes – public consultation paper for details on the questions we asked in the consultation and background information.
See Household living-costs price indexes: Background for information on the new set of price indexes that have been developed.
