Description

Introducing the Index of Household Payments, 12 September 2016 (12-2 pm)

The user group has long been calling for a measure of inflation that better captures households true expenditures, which could be used for uprating pay and benefits.

Recently the ONS has released a discussion paper on the development of a new indicator that measures changes to the expenditures made by households, termed 'the index of household payments'. The paper is on the ONS website at: https://www.ons.gov.uk/economy/inflationandpriceindices/methodologies/developinganindexofhouseholdpayments

ONS is encouraging as many people as possible to comment on the discussion points raised. The RPI CPI User Group is therefore hosting a public meeting to allow full discussion of the issues.The meeting would include:

  • A presentation by the ONS on their early thoughts on producing such an index
  • A response from John Astin and Jill Leyland
  • A question and answer session.

For those who may not be able to attend or would like to submit a question in advance please email rpicpiusergroup@gmail.com with the comments you would wish us to raise.

The meeting is open to all so please circulate to all interested parties/organisations.
