Price Kaleidoscope

The rate of price increase does not only depend on how prices change. The weights with which the price trends of the individual goods and services are reflected in the consumer price index are also important. On the one hand, the Price Kaleidoscope gives a quick overview of the weights and price trends of the individual goods and services classes. On the other, it offers very detailed information on the price trends in certain fields.

This graphic shows a preview on the price kaleidoscope.

Use the Price Kaleidoscope to get an overview of the price trends and weights of various goods and services classes.
