CPI by group

This chart set gives a detailed breakdown of the eleven price Groups used by Statistics NZ. For an even finer analysis into sub-groups, see the details released by them.

We also include a separate tab for central and local government charges. The components in this special group are all included in the other eleven main Groups.

The central and local government charges index includes items such as Housing New Zealand and local authority rentals, land transfer registration fees, local authority rates, water supply and part of refuse disposal, electricity, prescription charges and oral contraception, general practitioner fees, vehicle relicensing fees, road user charges, driver licensing fees, postage, State and integrated schools, tertiary education, other education, cheque duty, and official passports, licences and certificates.
