[1] Starting from the OECD CPI news release released in June 2018, the UK data published for the entire period by the OECD refers to the ONS lead inflation index, i.e. the Consumer Price Index Including Owner Occupiers’ Housing Costs (CPIH). This index is the most comprehensive measure of inflation in the UK. It extends the Consumer Price Index (CPI) formerly used by the OECD to include owner occupiers’ housing costs along with Council Tax.
