CPI Weights

expand

ID: CPI_WEIGHTS

Publication code: P0141.5

Supplier source page

Overview

All codes take the form: A.BBBB, where A is the basket, and BBBB is the mnemonic, which refers to the CPI weight items.

Note: the character length for all codes should be constant, however not all observations have the same depth in the hierarchy, thus shorter code lengths are extended by appending zeroes, which serve as placeholders.

For example, within the the mnemonic, “Cigarettes” is a group, meaning it only requires two characters (CC) to be identified. “Cigarettes” is thus represented by the code CC00, where the appended zeroes are merely placeholders as all codes must be of length four. A subclass item such as “Men’s Jerseys” by contrast requires four unique characters, WCMY, to be identified and thus no additional zeroes are necessary.

UNSD COICOP codelists: https://unstats.un.org/unsd/class/revisions/coicop_revision.asp

Regimes

There was relatively high continuity in basket item categorisations between years 1970, 1975, 1985, 1995 and 2000, so these all use the same codelist which we referred to as “Regime 1”. The basket item categorisations changed substantially in the 2008 data onwards, hence it is given a different codelist and we say that it is part of “Regime 2”.

Standardization

The CPI weights data for years 1985, 1975 and 1970 did not add up to 100. The inaccuracies are not substantial, the most egregious example is the middle expenditure group for 1975 which totals 99.76. In order to ensure all totals add up to 100, the weights in the aforementioned years have been normalised.

The normalisation process was performed as follows:

  • For a given expenditure quintile basket in a specific year the total of all weights is calculated, e.g. the middle expenditure group in 1975 had CPI weights totalling 99.76.
  • Then a normalisation factor is calculated by dividing 100 by the total weights for that group.
  • Each weight in that expenditure group is then transformed by multiplying the original weight by the normalisation factor for that group, yielding a normalised weight.
  • After applying this normalisation technique to all weights, the summation of all weights should total 100.

Baskets

The following codes represent the A in the A.BBBB format explained above for the expenditure quintile groups.  This codelist applies to both regimes.

  • T – Total
  • Z – Very low
  • L – Low
  • M – Medium
  • H – High
  • A – Very high
  • P – Pensioner
  • C – Core
  • X – CPIX
  • E – CPI excluding OER (Owners’ Equivalent Rent) (only in 2008)
