The consumer price index for Germany measures the average price change for all goods and services purchased by households for consumption purposes. These include for example food, clothing and motor cars as well as rentals, cleaning services or repair. Following the domestic concept all expenditures spent in Germany are taken into consideration, for example besides the expenditures of single-person households, married couples, families or couples of pensioners also the expenditures of foreign tourists. The price change of the consumer price index on same month a year earlier or rather to the previous year is colloquially also called "inflation rate".
