This table includes figures on the price developments of a package of goods and services purchased by consumers in the Netherlands. The figures are consistent with European directives also known as the harmonised consumer price index (HICP). In all member states of the European Union (EU), these indices are compiled in a similar manner to facilitate comparison between the various EU countries.

This table also contains the HICP at constant taxes: this price index excludes the effect of changes in the rates of product-related taxes (e.g. VAT and excise duty on alcohol and tobacco).

The table also includes the month-on-month and year-on-year changes of the HICP. The year-on-year change of total consumer expenditure is known as inflation. These figures are shown for 325 product groups. Furthermore, 34 combinations of product groups (special aggregates) are displayed. The weighting coefficient shows how much consumers in the Netherlands spend on each product group in relation to their total expenditure. The total weighting is 100,000.

HICP figures are published every month. In addition, an annual figure is published at the end of the year. The HICP of a calendar year is calculated as the average of the indices of the twelve months of that year.

Data available from: January 1996.

Status of the figures: Figures of the flash estimate are published at the end of a reporting month, or shortly thereafter. At the flash estimate, figures are made available for the all items category and for a selection of special aggregates. These figures are calculated on the basis of still incomplete source data. The results of the flash estimate are characterized as provisional.

In most cases, the figures are final in the second publication of the same reporting month. Differences between the provisional and final indices are caused by source material that has become available after the flash estimate. The results of the HICP are only marked as provisional in the second publication if it is already known at the time of publication that data are still incomplete, a revision is expected in a later month, or in special circumstances such as the corona crisis. In that case, the figures become final one month later.

Changes compared with previous version: Data on the most recent period have been added and/or adjustments have been implemented.

Changes as of 8 February 2024: Starting in the reporting month of January 2024, a price change will be published for expenditure category 063000 Hospital Services. The baseline month for this new index series is December 2023. This means that the index level of 100 is the price level measured in December 2023. Previously, between 2000 and 2009, an index was published for the same expenditure category. The baseline year for that index series was 2005=100. It was discontinued after December 2009. The current series starts again from 100 in December 2023.

When will new figures be published? The figures of the flash estimate are published on the last working day of the month to which the figures relate, or shortly thereafter.

Final figures will usually be published between the first and second Thursday of the month following on the reporting month.

All CPI and HICP publications are announced on the publication calendar.
