Statistics illustrated

The HICP measures the changes over time in the prices of consumer goods and services acquired by households. It is calculated according to a harmonised approach and a single set of definitions giving a comparable measure of inflation. This map shows the HICP annual rate of change.


The tool Inflation Illustrated gives an overview of the price changes and weights of the main product groups included in the Harmonised Index of Consumer Prices (HICP) for the European Union and the euro area.


The Inflation Dashboard allows you to select countries and individual product groups and displays relevant data simultaneously in a map, a bar chart and two line charts.
