Percent Change in Consumer Price Index (2014 = 100) for Households in Different Income Groups
Percent Change in Consumer Price Index (2014 = 100) for Households in Different Income Groups

The weighting pattern of the Consumer Price Index (CPI) was derived from the expenditure values collected from the 2012/13 Household Expenditure Survey (HES) and updated to 2014 values by taking into account price changes between 2012/13 and 2014.

All Items Less Imputed Rentals On Owner-Occupied Accommodation (All Items Less OOA) - A significant share of the CPI Accommodation group is 'owner-occupied accommodation (OOA) cost', which is computed based on the imputed rental concept under the rental equivalence method.  Besides the imputed rentals on OOA, actual rentals paid on rented units are included separately under the CPI Accommodation group.  Given that imputed rentals on OOA have no impact on the cash expenditure of most households in Singapore as they already own their homes, 'All Items less imputed rentals on OOA' is compiled as an additional indicator.
