Notes: Some components may not add up precisely due to rounding. These estimates are based on centred 3-month moving averages.
  1. These weights are based on the 2001 Canadian consumer expenditure patterns. They are applied to the whole period even if there was a change in basket in January 2003. This avoids weight shift influences on the estimates but totals are not exactly identical to those published.
  2. Twelve-month % change for January 2004 minus 12-month % change for January 2003.
