Friday 18 May 16:37

The All Items Retail Prices Index (RPI) is the main measure of inflation in Jersey.

It measures the change from quarter to quarter in the price of the goods and services purchased by an average household in Jersey.

The March 2018 report shows:

  • During the twelve months to March 2018 the All Items Retail Prices Index (RPI) for Jersey increased by 3.2% to stand at 171.2 (June 2000 = 100)
  • The Housing, Household services and Leisure services groups were the largest contributors to the overall annual increase in the RPI
  • The increase in the RPI over the twelve months to December 2017 was 3.6%; hence, the annual rate of inflation fell by 0.4 percentage points (pp) in the latest quarter
  • This fall in the annual rate of inflation was primarily due to the Household services, Motoring and Food groups seeing lower rates of price increase over the twelve months to March 2018 than over the twelve months to December 2017
  • RPI(X)  increased by 3.0% over the twelve months to March 2018
