Effective with the March 2017 update of BCI-15C - Int'l Comparisons-Consumer Prices, we are no longer calculating the “6-month change in harmonized consumer prices (AR pct.)”. Instead, the “12-month change in harmonized consumer prices (pct.),” or the annualized inflation rate for each country, will be reported. There is no modification of the series mnemonics.

Monthly Data

BCI-15C - Int'l Comparisons-Consumer Prices

Discontinued National Consumer Price Series

Each country produces its own consumer price index (CPI) using unique methods and concepts. For this reason, CPI data are not fully comparable across countries. Differences exist mainly in population coverage (e.g., urban households versus all urban and rural households), frequency of market basket weight changes, and treatment of homeowner costs. In contrast, the HICP (above) is an internationally comparable measure of consumer price inflation.
