additional information

From January 1999, the Retail Price Index (RPI) First Release and the Harmonised Index of Consumer Prices (HICP) First Release were combined to form a single Consumer Price Indices First Release following the advancement of the HICP publication timetable.

Users should note there were no changes to either the data or methodology for the RPI or HICP. The changes were purely presentational. Users wanting RPI or HICP information contained in the RPI or HICP First Releases should remember to access the Consumer Price Index First Release for information from January 1999.
