Estimation method: The methodology for calculating the Harmonised Index of Consumer Prices (HICP)
has been laid down in various regulations of the European commission and in supplementary
guidelines. Like the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for Germany, this index bases on the international
?Classification of Individual Consumption by Purpose? (COICOP). The prices collected for the German
CPI are also used to calculate the German HICP and like the CPI, the HICP measures only pure price
changes. It?s a Laspeyres price index which, in formal terms, is calculated as a chain index. In
Germany, the index weights are generally updated at five-year intervals, with the HICP weighting
elements being price-updated annually in line with the December prices of the previous year. The
current weights are based on the consumption structure of the year 2005.
