UK consumer price statistics: a review

External publication

The UK Statistics Authority published the independent review of UK consumer prices statistics led by Paul Johnson, Director of the Institute for Fiscal Studies, on 8 January 2015. Further information is also available in a news release also published on 8 January 2015.

The National Statistician will now consider the review and make recommendations to the Board of the UK Statistics Authority. The Authority expects to launch a formal public consultation in the summer of 2015 and to make a final response later in 2015.

The UK Statistics Authority commissioned this independent review in May 2013, in order to ensure that these UK consumer price statistics meet current and future user needs. The terms of reference for the review are reproduced in the full report and executive summary.
 
This independent review was launched alongside a second, separate but complementary review on the governance of prices statistics. That review reported in February 2014.
