The consumer price index (CPI) is the instrument used to measure inflation. It allows the estimation of the average variation between two given periods in the prices of products consumed by households. It is based on the observation of a fixed basket of goods updated every year. Each product has a weight in the overall index that is proportional to its weight in household expenditure.
