In China, the most important components of the CPI basket are Food (31.8 percent of total weight) and Residence (17.2 percent). Recreation, Education and Culture Articles account for 13.8 percent; Transportation and Communication for 10 percent, Healthcare and Personal Articles for 9.6 percent, Clothing for 8.5 percent; Households Facilities, Articles and Services for 5.6 percent; Tobacco, Liquor and Articles for the remaining 3.5 percent. The CPI basket is reviewed every five years on the basis of household surveys. Revisions reflect new spending patterns and economic development, according to the National Bureau of Statistics. Last revision took place in 2011.

Latest Updates

China's annual inflation unexpectedly was at 4.5 percent in December 2019, unchanged from the previous month and less than market expectations of 4.7 percent. Still, it remained the highest inflation rate since January 2012, as pork prices surged 97 percent on the back of a prolonged African swine fever epidemic. The government previously said it will use the reserves to provide sufficient pork supply to meat demand ahead of China's Lunar New Year holidays.
