Public consultation on CPI Advisory Committee 2013 recommendations

In February 2014 we asked for your views on the 2013 CPI Advisory Committee’s recommendations. The committee met in May 2013 to independently review the CPI. Your recommendations formed a valuable part of the consultation process.

Topics we consulted on

  1. Does New Zealand need a monthly CPI?
  2. Which regions should we collect CPI prices from?
  3. Should we produce price indexes for particular groups of households?
  4. Should we produce a seasonally adjusted analytical CPI series?
  5. Should we produce indexes that compare price levels of different regions at a single point in time?
  6. Should the scope of the CPI be extended to include overseas purchases by New Zealand households when travelling abroad?

We asked for your views on:

  • priority of the recommendations
  • your needs and those of the wider user community – what changes and quality trade-offs are necessary given the likely costs and benefits.

Feedback

We are continuing to consult on price indexes for particular groups of households, and we welcome any further submissions on this topic.
