Consumer price indices (CPIs) measure inflation as price changes of a representative basket of goods and services typically purchased by households. The G20 CPI aggregate reflects national CPIs for all G20 countries that are not part of the European Union (EU) while it reflects the Harmonised Indices of Consumer Prices (HICP) for the EU, its Member States and for Turkey.

The G20 CPI has been calculated for the headline indicators only (CPI All items / HICP Total). It is an annual chain-linked Laspeyres-type index. The weights for each country in each link are based on the previous year's relative share of individual final consumption expenditure of households and non-profit institutions serving households expressed in Purchasing Power Parities (PPPs).

The G-20 consists of the following economies: Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, the Russian Federation, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Turkey, the United Kingdom, the United States, and the European Union. The G-20 aggregate is calculated taking the fifteen individual country members of the G-20 (other than France, Germany, Italy and the United Kingdom) plus the European Union as an aggregate. On 11 July 2017, the Argentine Authorities started to publish a new national CPI (December 2016 = 100) covering the whole country. This officially reported CPI-series starts in December 2016, and has now been included in the G-20 aggregate, from January 2018 onwards. The inclusion of the Argentinian CPI in the G-20 aggregate entails a clear break in the series. In January 2018, the inclusion of the Argentinian annual national inflation of 24.8% impacts the G-20 aggregate inflation by about 0.25 percentage point. The G-20 CPI aggregate is estimated at 2.5% without inclusion of Argentinian CPI. *https://www.boletinoficial.gob.ar/pdf/linkQR/QlFlS1dmVmpOWXMrdTVReEh2ZkU0dz09
