    Consumer prices

    The consumer prices dataset is a subset of the Main Economic Indicators (MEI) database comprising predominantly monthly statistics on all items, food, energy and services as well as harmonised consumer prices for all items. Data are expressed as percentage change or index (2005 = 100) and are available from 1950 onwards.

    Consumer prices: national weights

    This dataset contains the annual expenditure weights for the national consumer price indices at a detailed level of the Classification of Individual Consumption According to Purpose (COICOP), except for Australia and Korea. The weight of a product in a CPI is the proportion of total household expenditure which is spent on that product during the weight reference period.

    Country weights in area totals

    This dataset contains the annual expenditure weights for the national consumer price indices (CPI) for the OECD Member countries  (except Australia and Korea) at a detailed level of the COICOP classification. The weight of a product in a CPI is the proportion of total household expenditure which is spent on that product during the weight reference period. Data are available from 1959 onwards and measured per thousand of the national CPI total.

    Comparative price levels

    This dataset contains monthly comparative price levels (CPL) which are defined as the ratios of purchasing power parities (PPPs) for private final consumption expenditure to exchange rates. They provide measures of differences in price levels between countries. The monthly PPPs used to derive the table are OECD estimates obtained by extrapolating 2011 PPPs for private final consumption expenditure using the relative rates of inflation between the countries as measured by their consumer price indices.
