Developer description

The consumer price index is one of the important inputs for planning and research in various fields, and like other statistical bureaus worldwide, Statistics Centre – Abu Dhabi (SCAD) collects the prices of the goods and services consumed by the household sector on a regular basis and, following the methodologies adopted internationally in this area, compiles and publishes the indicators derived from the price data, thereby building a time series that measures change in the cost of living over time, using 2014 as the base year.‬
