Description

The consumer price index (CPI) is a benchmark for general price developments and inflation in Austria. The Harmonized Index of Consumer Prices (HICP) is the basis for the comparable measurement of inflation in Europe and for the assessment of monetary stability within the euro zone; international values ​​can be found on the Eurostat website. In addition to its role as a general inflation indicator, the CPI is used to maintain the value of monetary amounts (e.g. rents, alimony payments), but it is also the data basis for wage negotiations. Both consumer price indices are therefore important indicators for Austrian and European data users. In 2020, the CPI was revised for the tenth time since 1958. The previous "Consumer Price Index 2015" was replaced by the "Consumer Price Index 2020" (CPI 2020). The previous indices are continued by corresponding chaining factors.
