This paper outlines Statistics New Zealand’s decisions and progress on implementing the 2013 Consumers Price Index (CPI) Advisory Committee’s recommendations.
The committee, which met in May 2013, made 16 recommendations that endorse the practices used to compile the CPI and advise ways the CPI can be further enhanced. Of the 16 recommendations, nine confirm current practice.
After reviewing feedback about the recommendations from the public, we have now decided which other recommendations we are implementing. The decisions are summarised in this paper.
