Description
  • Abstract

    The available data collection compiles the most important price indices of living costs published in official price statistics. The price indices for the standard of living are to show, in which measure the haouseholds’ standard of living increased or decreased in price due to price alteration, but unaffected by changes by consumers’ behaviour. Therefore, the consumer price indices are to measure the pure price development, isolated from changes in quantity or quality. Basis of the index is the supposition, that the structure of private households’ consumer expenditures doesn’t have changed since the basis-year (Laspeyres-Index). The consumer price index covers groups of goods, which are bought and/or used by the private households. The private households’ expenditure structure is the basis of this price index, therefore the index is to be regarded as a “purchase price index” for private ultimate consumer. Aim of the consumer price statistics is – as it is the aim of the whole official price statistics – the registration of price changes. Therefore their most important results are price indices to a certain base year and not average prices in absolute height. Furthermore, living-cost price indices informs about the percental increas or decrease of the goods’ and achievments’ prices (in relation to a base year).
