Annual change

Inflation experienced from the June 2016 quarter to the June 2017 quarter:

  • lowest-expenditure household group – up 2.0 percent
  • beneficiaries – up 2.0 percent
  • Māori households – up 1.8 percent
  • superannuitants – up 1.7 percent
  • highest-expenditure household group – up 1.4 percent
  • households overall – up 1.6 percent.

Household living-costs price indexes (HLPIs) provide new insights into the inflation experienced by 13 different household groups: We publish an all-households HLPI for comparison.

The HLPIs are different from the overall basket of inflation as measured by the consumers price index (CPI). The CPI measures price changes experienced for New Zealand households overall. As a national average, the CPI does not reflect price changes for different groups in society. HLPIs also include mortgage-interest payments in place of 'construction of newly built houses'.

See also Household living-costs price indexes: Background for more on these new indexes.
