|Note:Prices for the average retail prices tables are collected as part of the regular monthly Consumer Price Index (CPI) survey. Unlike the CPI, average retail prices cannot be used to measure pure price change over time. In a given month, retail prices may be averaged across products that vary by quality, brand and outlet. In addition, product characteristics are not held constant over time. The CPI should be used for the measurement of pure price change. Formerly Ottawa (Ottawa-Hull, Ontario part). |
