On a UK Consumer Price Series for Christmas Trees

6 days ago

The UK agricultural price indices include a component for Christmas trees. Although the flowers and plants group to which Christmas trees belongs is not seasonally weighted in the UK series as it is in its French counterpart, the UK API does have seasonal weighting for fruits and vegetables using the Rothwell formula. In this regard, it serves as a model for what could be done in the UK consumer price series.
