  • Index and guides: 62-560-X
    Description:

    This teacher's kit helps students understand how the Consumer Price Index (CPI) reflects price changes for the goods and services they buy.

    The Custom Inflation Simulator is a Web-based resource that demonstrates how the many consumer goods and services in the 'basket' are used to calculate the CPI, and how consumption patterns differ from person to person. Using the simulator, students can also see the effect of individual price increases on overall inflation, in other words how each item in the basket is 'weighted' to reflect its importance in Canadians' consumption patterns.

    Description:

    The Farm Product Price Index (FPPI) is a monthly series that measures the changes in prices that farmers receive for the agriculture commodities they produce and sell.

    The FPPI was discontinued in March 1995; it was revived in April 2001 owing to continued demand for an index of prices received by farmers.

    This paper studies the slowdown in Canadian consumer inflation, focussing on the appreciation of the Canadian dollar against the U.S. dollar. It analyses the contribution of goods and services to the deceleration in the Consumer Price Index (CPI) and compares Canadian and U.S. price movements for similar items.

    Description:

    This paper documents the approach used to construct the shelter element of the current spatial index program. The intercity indexes of the retail price differentials program of Prices Division had, until recently, excluded any reference to shelter because of conceptual issues. A rental equivalence approach is used for measuring spatial variations in the costs of shelter services among cities. To control for quality variations across areas, a semi-log separate hedonic regression methodology is used to construct the Laspeyres, Paasche, and Fisher Törnqvist interarea indices.

  • Technical products: 75F0002M2004001
    Description:

    The purpose of this document is to describe the detailed methodology and assumptions behind the construction of the market basket measure (MBM) of low income. Also this document will raise some issues and highlight some data limitations related to the MBM.

    The MBM represents the cost of a basket that includes a nutritious diet, clothing and footwear, shelter, transportation, and other necessary goods and services (such as personal care items or household supplies).

    The MBM methodology was developed by the Federal/Provincial/Territorial Working Group on Social Development Research and Information for Human Resources Development Canada (HRDC).
