The Consumer Price Index is one of the most useful indicators of inflation. It measures the change in prices of a fixed basket of goods and services commonly purchased by the majority of households.

The CPI for Jan-Aug 05 rose by 0.2% over the same period last year. The increase was attributed mainly to dearer food, cigarettes and electricity tariffs. Prices of clothing & footwear increased by 3.6 percent.
