CPIH is a new measure of the annual rate of UK consumer price inflation that includes owner occupiers' housing costs (OOH).

Owner-occupied housing costs are the costs of housing services associated with owning, maintaining and living in one's own home. OOH does not include costs such as utility bills, minor repairs and maintenance, which are already included in the consumer price index.

The table below summarises the estimated annual rate of inflation for the UK using the CPIH measure during recent years.
