NATIONAL HIGHLIGHTS
POINTS SAILLANIS D[ L'IM)ICE NATIONAL
The All-items Consumer Price Index (CPI) for Canada
increased by 0.3% between July and August reaching a
level of 133.3 (1901:100). This latest increase was
moderate compared to a rise of 0.8% observed in July.
Six of the seven major component indexes registered
increases of varying magnitudes in August while the
Iransportetion index fell. A large part of the
overall rise originated from advances in the Housing
(0.2%), Food (0.4%) and Clothing (1.1%) indexes.

ont affiché des augeentations plus ou loins fortes an soOt,
alors que l'indice des transports a chute. Une part importante de i'augmentation globale eat due sux avances des
indices de Ihabitation (0.2%), des aliments (0.4%) et de

Seasonally adjusted, the All-items index rose by
0.4% in August following an increase of 0.7% in July.
L'ir,dice densemble désaisonnalisé a progresse de 0.4% en
ao0t, alors quil avait augmentC de 0.7% on juillet.
The year-to-year increase in the CPI, as measured
between August 1985 and August 1986, was 4.3%, up
marginally from the 4.2% observed in the 12-month
period ending in July. The August increase was not
ignificantly different from the average of 12-month
increases (4.1%) observed in the first seven months of
1986. The compounded annual rate of change based on
the seasonally adjusted levels over the latest 3-month
period (Hay to August) was 4.6%.

Food
Ali.enta
Between July and August the Food index advanced by
0.4% representing a considerably weaker rate when
compared to the increase of 1.3% observed between June
and July. Both the index for Food Purchased from
Stores and that for Food Purchased from Restaurants
rose by 0.4% following advances of 1.4% and 0.9% respectively in July.
Lindice des aliments a avancé de 0.4 14 entre juillet et
soOt, soit (% tsux de progression nettement inférieur a ceiui

achetCs au magasin et lindice des sliments mhetCs so restaurant ont tous deux sugmenté de 0.4%, alors qu'ils avaient
progressC de 1.4% at de 0.9% respectivement en juillet.
The 0.4% increase observed in the index for Food
Purchased from Stores resulted largely from higher
prices for meat products, fresh fruit and selected
dairy products. Pork prices increased by 3.6% as they
continued to reflect a cyclical shortage of hogs for
slaughter in Canada and the United States. This had
an impact on the prices of cured, prepared and readyCooked meat products which have increased for the
second month. Partly due to an apparent shift in
consumer demand, the price of chicken, which rose
sharply in July, continued to rise but at a lesser
rate. Beef prices also continued to rise in August.
The Fresh Fruit index rose significantly in August due
largely to a noticeable hike in apple prices, the
result, in part, of the seasonal shortage in domestic
supply.Price increases were also observed for
low-fat silk and bread.Some part of this overall
increase was dampened by seasonally lower prices for
fresh vegetables as well as a drop in the prices of
sugar and coffee.

Over the 12-month period August 1985 to August
1986, the Food index increased by 5.5% recording the
sharpest year-to-year rise in this index since the
5.6% reported in the 12-month period ending in
September 1984. Increases of 5.7% and 4.9% In the
indexes for Food Purchased from Stores and Food
Purchased from Restaurants respectively accounted for
the latest 12-month rise in the Food index.

All-ite.s excluding Food
Indice d'ense1e sans lea aii.ents
On a month-to-month basis, the All-items excluding
Food index rose by 0.3%, a noticeable slowdown from
the increase of 0.6% reported in the previous month.
The rise in the most recent month was largely attributable to increases in the Housing (0.2%), Clothing
(1.1%) and Recreation, Reading and Education (0.5%)
indexes. A decline of 0.2% in the Transportation
index had a miiall moderating effect on these overall
upward pressures.
Dun mois a lautre, lindice d'ensembie sans ies miiments
a grispe de 0.3%, cc gui reprCsente un ralentissement notable
par rapport b 1 augmentation de 0.6% observCe su nois prCcCdent. La montCe so cours du dernier mois CcoulC eat imputable
en grande partie aux hsusses des indices de l'habitation
(0.2%), de lhsbillement (1.1%) et des loisirs, de is lecture
at de is formation (0.5%). Le flCchissement de 0.2% de
i'indice des transports a attCnuC quelque peu leffet d'entralnement global exercC per ces hausses.
A large part of the 0.2% increase in the Housing
index resulted from a significant increase in the
index for Rented Acconwilodation due principally to rent
increases in the province of Québec. Higher new house
prices observed mostly in the urban centres of Ontario
and Québec have also contributed substantially to the
Laugeentation de 0.2% de l'indice de ihabitatlon est due
dens one large mesure a l'indice do logement en location gui a
progreasC notablement sous leffet surtout des hausses de
loyer su Québec. Le relèvement des prix des msisons rnwuvea

et do Québec a egalement contribuC notablement a is dernière
latest increase. A small part of the overall upward augmentation. La poussée globale sur lea prix a ëté légereimpact was offset by lower prices for furniture, sent atténuée par 18 diminution des prix des meubles.
The 1.1% rise in the Clothing index in August followed a decline of 0.3% in July. (Most of the latest
increase was concentrated in prices for women's suits,
dresses and sportswear as well as for men's pants,
suits, sports jackets and footwear). A return to
regular price levels from 'sales' prices reported
previously and the introduction of some new fall
selections were mainly responsible for the latest
increase.
La montée de 1.1% de l'indice de lhabillemer,t an soOt
survient après iMe diminution de 0.3% an juillet. (La dernière augmentation eat due principale,nent aux majorations des
prix des tailleurs, robes at vétementa de sport pour feeinea,
ainsi que des pantalons, complets, vestes de sport et chaussures pour hommes.) Le retour des prix réguliers après lea
"soldes" signalés précédeinment et le lancement de certaina
nouveaux vAtements d'automne expliquent an grande partie is
dernière augmentation.
A large part of the 0.5% increase in the Recreation, Reading and Education index came from price
increases for cameras, photographic films and film
processing services. The prices of seasonal recreational vehicles such as boats and bicycles also rose
as they returned to regular prices from previous sales
levels. In addition, higher prices for selected
magazines were noted.
line honne part de laccroissement de 0.5% de iindice des
loisirs, de Is lecture et de is formation découle de Is hausse
des prix des cameras, des pelliculea photographiques et des
services de développement de pellicules. Les prix de certains
vChicules rCcrCatifs saisonniers, come les embarcations et
les bicyclettes, ont également augmenté avec le retour des
prix rCguliers une fois lea soldes terminés. En outre,
certaines revues coOtent plus cher.
Other less notable contributions to the rise in the
All-items excluding Food index came from a 0.3% increase for the Tobacco Products and Alcoholic Beverages index as well as a 0.2% rise for the Health and
Personal Care index. The increase in the former
reflected higher prices for alcoholic beverages served
in licensed premises as well as for some beer and
liquor purchased from stores. Wine prices fell
rnarqinally, mainly in Québec and British Columbia,
owing partly to a rise in the Canadian dollar exchange
rate xis-a-via the French franc.
Laugmentation de 0.3% de l'indice des produits du tabac et
des hoissons slcoolisées et Is montCe de 0.2% de l'indice de
is sante et des anins peraonnels ont egalement contribué, mais
dana une mesure 'noindre, h l'accroissement de i'indice d'ensemble sans les aliments. Dans le cas de lindice des produits du tabac at des boissons alcoolisCes, Is progression eat
imputable aux majorstions des prix des boissons alcoolisées
servies dans lea debits sinai qu'à Is hausse des prix de
certaines bières at de certains spiritueux achetCs au sagasin. Les prix des vms ont léqerement baissC, surtout au
Québec et en Colombie-Britannique, en raison notament de
l'augmentation de Is valeur du dollar canadien par rapport au
franc français.
A smsll part of the overall upward pressure on the
All-items excluding Food index was offset by a decline
of 0.2% reported in the Transportation index. A
considerable part of this decline was due to the
continuing widespread incidence of gasoline "price
wars'. The Gasoline index fell by 0.7% in August
making this the sixth month in 1986 that this index
has declined. On average, gasoline prices are now
13.5% below their levels of August 1985. Competitive
price discounts offered on the purchases of selected
new automobiles also contributed significantly to the
latest decline. Some part of the overall downward
movement in the Transportation index was offset by a
rise in drivers' licence fees in Québec.
Leffet dentralnement exercC sur l'indice d'ensembie sans
lea aliments a Cté atténuC quelque peu par le recul de 0.2% de
l'indice des transports. Lea "querres de prix" de lessence,
toujours fréquentes et generaliseea, expliquent en grande
partie cc recul. L'indice de l'essence a chute de 0.7% an
soOt ce qui reprCsente Is aixième diminution mensuelle de cet
indice en 1986. En moyenne, lea prix de leasence sont
maintenant inférieurs de 13.5% h ceux d'aoOt 1985. Sous
i'effet de la concurrence, lea prix de certaines voitures
neuves ont baissé ce qui a Cgaiement contribué notablement au
dernier recul. La diminution globale de l'indice des transports a été freinée queique peu par le relèvement des droits
de permim de conduire su Québec.
Over the 12-month period, August 1985 to August 1986,
the All-items excluding Food index rose by 4.0%, down
slightly from the increase of 4.1% reported in the
previous 12-month period ending in July.

index advanced by 0.4%. The latest changes in both
indexes represent some degree of deceleration when
compared to the increases of 0.5% and 1.1% respectively in the Goods and Services indexes for July.
Between August 1985 and August 1986 the Goods index
rose by 3.2% maintaining a relatively lower rate of

City Highlighta
Points saillants des indices dma villea
Between July and August, changes in the All-items
indexes for cities for which CPI's are published
varied from a decline of 0.2% in Saint John to an
increase of 0.7% in Québec. The lower than average
change in Saint John resulted mainly from smaller than
average movements in all its major non-food component
indexes. The above average rise in the case of Québec
resulted from greater than average increases noted
principally in its Food, Housing, Transportation and
Health and Personal Care indexes.

(1) Starting with January 1986, the seasonally adjusted movements for the All-items Conaumer Price Index for Canada are the result of running the seasonal adjustment progra'iwne on three separate time series each employing a different set of aeights consistent with the life of each psrticular
"basket". The progrmiame is run at the level of the seven major component indeses and the seasonally adjusted results are aggregated using a consistent set of iieights in each time series to produce the All-iteem and the All-items excluding Food indexes. These two seasonally adjusted
aggregates, as well as the Food index, are "1 inked" or "chained" to form a continuous series starting from January 1978. The seasonal adjustment
proqrar,sse is run each month using the latest observed data. This approach has eliminated the need for projected seasonal fsctors which normally
accompanied the results alien the seasonal adjustment esercise aas dene only once a year.

St. 3oui's

No overall change was recorded in the All-items
index due to a number of offsetting price movements.
Higher clothing prices, increased recreation and
reading chargea and advances in the cost of personal
care services and medicinal and pharmaceutical products exerted a significant upward influence. The
Housing index remained unchanged overall, with higher
charges For rented and owned accommodation and increaaed costa for household furnishings and equipment
completely offsetting lower household operation
costs. Food prices declined slightly, as lower prices
for beef, dairy products, cereal and bakery products
and fresh vegetables more than offset higher prices
for pork, chicken, cured and prepared meats, fresh
fruit and restaurant meals. Within the Transportation
component, declines were observed in the costs of
gasoline and new cars. Since August 1985, the Allitems index has risen 2.8%.

Higher food prices (most notably for beef, pork,
cured and prepared meats and fresh produce) and
increased prices for cigarettes and for alcoholic
beverages served in licensed premises explained most
of the 0.5 1 rise in the All-itema index. Increased
charges relating to personal care supplies and services, higher vehicle insurance premiums, increased
charges for rented and owned accommodation and higher
prices for household furnishings also exerted a significant upward impact. At the same time, prices for
electricity, clothing and gasoline fell. Since August
1985, the All-items index has risen 1.7%.

Main contributors to the 0.2% rise in the All-items
index were higher food prices, increased housing
charges and advances in the prices of cigarettes and
served alcoholic beverages. The Food index advanced
due mainly to higher prices for beef, pork, cured
meats, dairy products, fresh fruit and restaurant
meals. These were offset slightly by lower prices for
chicken, bakery products and fresh vegetables. The
rise in the Housing index largely reflected higher
rented accommodation charges and increased coats for
furniture and for household operation. Other notable
increases were observed for women's wear and for
prescribed and non-prescribed medicines. Partly
offsetting these advances were decreased owned accommodation charges and lower prices for new cars. Since
August 1985, the All-items index has risen 3.1%.

The All-items index rose marginally (0.1%) as the
impact of higher prices for food, clothinq, alcoholic
beverages and selected recreational goods was offset
to a large extent by lower charges for housing and
transportation. In the Food index, higher prices for
fresh fruit, beef, pork and restaurant meals were
observed.Clothing prices were up, mainly due to
higher prices for womens wear. The Housing index
declined as lower furniture prices and homeownership
charges were offset partially by advances in rented

Note:
In keeping with its commitment to publish consumer
price indexes for at least one urban centre in each
province and territory, Statistics Canada, as part of
the 1978 Updating, began to develop consumer price
indexes for the urban centres of Whitehorse and
Yellowknife. While indexes for these centres are
available starting in March of 1982, they are only
included in the calculation of the official CPI for
Canada starting with the January 1985 data.
Statistique Canada, conformAment b son engagement de publier des indices des prix a is consotsmation pour au moms in
centre urbsin dans chsque province et territoire, a coiTseencA a
Alaborer des indices de prix a Is consommation pour lea centres urbains de Whitehorse at Yellowknife dana le cadre de is
mise a jour de 1978. Bien que lea indices pour cea centres
soient disponibles a partir de mars 1982, us ne sont compris
dans le calcul de l'IPC official pour le Canada qua compter
de janvier 1985 seulement.
It has not yet been possible to develop an owned
accommodation index for these two centres comparable
to that in concept of the national CPI. The nature
and the relatively small size of the housing market in
these two centres are such that Statistics Canada has
been unable to construct reliable price indexes for
new houses. It was decided that as an interim and
only available alternative measure, the price movement
of rental accosmodation would be used to represent
that of owned accommodation. As a consequence, the
All-items indexes published for these centres are not
comparable to those for Canada or for any of the other
sixteen urban centres for which a CPI is produced.
The rent data used are collected on a quarterly basis
by the respective territorial governments. For rents,
the data are incorporated into the consumer price
indexes for these two centres with a two month lag.
Ii n's pas encore Ate possible d'Alaborer, pour ces deux
centres, in indice du logement en propriAtA qui soit
conceptuellement comparable a celui incorporA a l'IPC
national. La nature et is petitesse relative du marchA de
l'habitation dens ces deux centres ont empAchA Statistique
Canada de construire des indices de prix fiables pour lea
maisons neuves. Comme c'est is seule mesure disponible, il a
Ate dAcidA dutiiiser, pour le moment, ie mouvement des prix
du iogement en location pour reprAsenter ceiui du logement en
propriAtA. En consequence, lea indices d'ensemble publiAs
pour ces centres ne sont pas cosparabies 4 ceux du Canada ou
d'aucun des seize autres centres urbains pour lesquels in IPC
eat calculA. Lea donnAes sur lea loyers utilisCes sont
recueillies trimestrieilement par las deux administrations publiques territoriales. S'agissant des loyera, lea donnAes
pour ces deux centres sont incorporCea aux indices de prix 4

TECHNICAL NOTES (THE CONSUMER PRICE INDEX) NOTES TECHNIQUES (L'INDICE DES PRIX
Definition
Definition
The Consner Price Index (CR1) measures the percentage change through time in the cost of purchasing
a constant 'basket' of goods and services representing
the purchases by a particular population qroup in a
specified time period. The "basket" is of an unchanging or equivalent quantity and quality of goods and
services, consisting of items for which there are continually measurable market prices over time. Changes
in the cost of this basket are therefore due only to
price movements.
L'indice des prix b la consonmnation (IPC) cnesure is variation dans Is temps, exprimée en pourcentaqe, du coOt h l'schat
d'un 'panier" constant de biens et de services, qui reprCsente
les achats faits par un groups particulier de Ia population au
cours d'une période donnée. Le "panier' renferme des biens et
des services de quantite et de qualite invariables ou équivalentes et dont lea prim sont mesurables au cours du temps.
Cest sinai que les variations de son coot résultent uniquesent du mouvenient des prim.
The CR1 for each city measures price change from one time period to another within that specific city. Thus, while city CPI's show the movement of prices in each city, they do not indicate price level differ- ences between cities or between cities and Canada. Such inter-city price comparisons for a selected num-
ber of items in the consisner basket are published separately in Consumer Prices and Price Indexes, Cats-
logue 62-010. L'IRC de chaque agglomeration urbaino mesure les variations
de prix entre deux périodes clans cette agglomeration. Aussi
ies IPC des villes indiquent-ils le mouvement des prix dans
chaque agglomeration, maim non lea differences du niveau des

Separate CPI's are published for 16 of these
centres plus Whitehorae and Yeltowknife which,
together, accounted for slightly over 70% of the total
1982 current consumption expenditure reported in the
81 centres. These 18 centres were, in part, selected
in order to permit the publication of at least one CR!
in each province.

Prices
Prix
The prices used in the calculation of the CR1 are
retail prices inclusive of sales and excise taxes
without regard to whether they are described as
regular, special, etc. For most coiiinodities, the
price collection for a given month's index is carried
out within a four week period, starting about the
beginning of the third week of the previous month and
ending in the middle of the given month. The frequency of price collection during the course of the
year depends on the nature of the given commodity.
Although prices for most CR1 commodities are collected
on a monthly basis, prices of food items and gasoline,
because of their volatility, are collected twice a
month. Prices for commodities characterized by loss
frequent price changes, e.g., property taxes, electricity rates, etc. are collected at intervals longer
than one month. However, special pricings for any
commodity will be conducted prior to the next regularly scheduled pricing when there is evidence to
suggest that significant price changes have occurred.
The nienber of prices observed in a given urban centre
depends upon the importance of that urban centre's
expenditures to the total Canada expenditure and also
the nature of the commodity, with those commodities
displaying a higher variability of price change generally requiring more observations. The selection of
outlets in which prices are to be collected is judgmental (other than for rents) with the sample being
designed to represent volume selling establishments.
Les prix servant mu calcul de l'IPC sont lea prix de
detail, taxe de vente et d'acciae incluses, qu'il s'agisae de
prix rCguliers, de prix spCciaux, etc. Pour Is plupart des
produits, Is collecte des prim pour l'indice dun mois donnC

Weights and Linking
Poridérations at enchaine.ent
The weights used in the calculation of the CPI are
periodically updated. This is a necessary procedure
which serves to ensure that weights reflect changes in
conasner expenditures thereby maintaining the relevance of the index. In January 1985, the CPI weights
were updated using 1982 Family Expenditure patterns.
Lee pondérations utilisées dens le calcul de lIPC sont
mises a jour periodiquement. Ce procédé eat nécessaire pour
que les pondérations tiennent compte des changements qui
s'opèrent au niveau des dépenses a Is consonmiation et, par Is
fait méme, pour que lindice conserve as pertinence. En
janvier 1985, lea pondérations de lIPC ont été eiaea h jour

weights, see Text Table 11, page 36.
The indexes based on 1982 weights were linked or
connected in December 1984 to the appropriate indexes
based on 1978 weights which had been in use since
April 1982. This linking procedure ensures that
conceptually equivalent series are made continuous
over time. The linking method is such that aggregate
indexes cannot be considered as the direct average of
their respective component indexes. In exceptional
cases, this may cause the percentage change and/or the
level of an aggregate index to fall outside the range
of its component indexes.

Time liasa
Base tençorelle
The CPI for Canada and each index city is expressed
in terms of 1981=100. The CPIs for Whitehorse and
Yeliowknife (see Table 7) are on a March 1982:100 base
and the CPI for Victoria is on a December 1984=100
base. In conforming with Statistics Canada policy of
regularly updating the time reference base of various
statistical series, the official time base of the CR1
is updated once every 10 years.

Percent Versus Index Point Changes
Chan?ementa en pourcentage versus changements en po ints
d'indice
The movements of the indexes from one month to
another are expressed as percent changes rather than
changes in index points. Index point changes are
affected by the level of the index which in turn depends on the time base of that index. Changes between
any time period can readily be calculated by dividing
the index point difference between the two time periods by the base period index, and multiplying the
reeult by one hundred.
