CPIH is the most comprehensive measure of inflation and we will go ahead with previously announced changes from this month.
We welcome the Office for Statistics Regulation's recognition of the considerable progress that has been made. We introduced significant improvements to CPIH in 2015 with the final improvements being introduced this month.
We will work to obtain National Statistics status for CPIH as soon as possible.
The statement from the Office for Statistics Regulation on CPIH is available.
