The Consumer Price Index (CPI) is an index that measures the rate at which prices in a fixed basket of goods and services change from month to month. As the price of individual items in the basket change, the total cost of the basket will vary. The CPI is a very important statistic that is used for assessing the cost of living and wage negotiation by trade unions.
