How is this data produced?

The CPI measures the cost of purchasing a constant, representative 'basket' of goods and services. The quantity and quality of goods in the basket are kept constant, so that changes in the cost of the basket are purely due to price changes. The changes in the cost of this basket represent the rate of inflation. For a deeper understanding of the price collection and CPI computation methodology, please refer to the Technical Notes. Finally, it should be noted that Malaysia's CPI classification is deliberately consistent with the United Nations Classification of Individual Consumption According to Purpose (COICOP) to ensure international comparability.

What caveats I should bear in mind when using this data?

When interpreting inflation rates derived from the CPI, it is important to remember that the rate of inflation experienced by a specific individual may be higher or lower than this number. This does not invalidate the CPI, which is meant to be an average value representative of the entire population.
