Title
  • On the Consumer Price Index in Austria. Cost-of-Living Index or Price Index?
Author
  • Wolfgang Pollan
Physical Description
  • article
Notes
  • At present, Austria's Statistical Office computes two consumer price indices, which yield two different inflation rates. One index, the Harmonised Index of Consumer Prices (HICP) yields estimates of the rate of inflation in Austria which are comparable with those of other countries in the euro area. The HICP is based on methods that have been approved by Eurostat, the statistical office of the EU, Austria's National Consumer Price Index is not; it is in need of a methodological update. The consumer price index is more than just the average of prices; the theoretical rationale of consumer price indices is discussed by contrasting the concepts of a cost-of-living index with that of a pure price index.
