Consumer Prices

The Consumer Price Index (CPI) is a monthly publication by DOSM which presents statistics on the cost of purchasing 12 main groups of goods and services. This is consistent with the classification according to the United Nations "Classification of Individual Consumption According to Purpose" (COICOP). Malaysia’s CPI is compiled based on prices that are collected on either on a monthly basis (for all items) or weekly basis (for perishable food items). Rents are collected once in a quarter.
