Abstract

10.1 The environment in which statistical agencies operate is changing. New opportunities to access and interrogate big data are becoming available, increasing the potential to provide new insights and possibilities for the compilation of consumer price indices (CPIs). The statistical landscape is becoming more complex, expectations of decision makers are growing, and national statistical offices (NSOs) are being challenged to deliver the best possible statistical program in more efficient and innovative ways.
