New Consumer Price Index (CPI) basket weights, representing consumer spending patterns in 2015, are now available. The new weights are based on the 2015 Survey of Household Spending (SHS).
These new weights will be incorporated into the survey with the January 2017 CPI, which will be released on February 24, 2017. They will replace the previous weights, which were based on the 2013 SHS.
More information about the concepts and use of the Consumer Price Index are available online in The Canadian Consumer Price Index Reference Paper (62-553-X).
