Prices: Country weights in area totals (Edition 2016)

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.
