"The CONSUMER PRICE INDEX (CPI) is a measure of the average change in prices over time of goods and services purchased by households, both families and single persons living alone. The Guam 2008 CPI is based on the concept of a representative “market basket”, a sample of all goods and services that consumers purchase as determined by the 2005 Household Income and Expenditure Survey (HIES) funded by the US Department of Interior to the US Census Bureau, and is similar in design with the US CPI."
"The CPI is measured from a total of 168 items from 8 major groups, and indices are computed at two differentlevels of aggregation. More than 1,070 price quotations are collected during the middle month of each quarter either by telephone or on-site survey by qualified price enumerators. There are approximately 212 business outlets included in the construction of the CPI, ranging from grocery, department and hardware stores to a variety of service establishments. This report provides average price changes for all groups and subgroups, and special indexesfrom consecutive quarters to one year earlier. An annual average and annualized inflation rate are also reported. "
