Notes:
This Consumer Price Index (CPI) series uses a 2005 basket definition and thus differs from that used in constant dollar conversions in the 2007 Education Indicators in Canada: Report of the Pan-Canadian Education Indicators Program and previous editions. For the CPI used previously, see CANSIM table 326-0002 or the PCEIP 2007 Handbook, Appendix 3 (Statistics Canada and Council of Ministers of Education, Canada. 2007. Education indicators in Canada: Handbook for the Report of the Pan-Canadian Education Indicators Program. Catalogue no. 81-582-XIE ).
The eight major components of the Consumer Price Index (CPI) basket are: food; shelter; household operations, furnishings and equipment; clothing and footwear; transportation; health and personal care; recreation, education and reading; and alcoholic beverages and tobacco products.
To use the CPI to convert data in current dollars for a given year T, to constant dollars of a selected base year, multiply the current dollar value for year T by the ratio (CPI for the base year) / (CPI for the year T). For example, to convert a current dollar amount for 2007 to 2001 constant dollars, multiply it by the CPI for 2001 and divide by the CPI for 2007.
Separate CPIs are published for Canada, the 10 provinces, Whitehorse, Yellowknife and Iqaluit. For more information on this CPI series, see the footnotes to CANSIM table 326-0021. For more information on the Consumer Price Index and converting current dollars to constant dollars, see Statistics Canada. 1996. Your Guide to the Consumer Price Index. Catalogue No. 62-557-XPB. Ottawa.
