Summary:

Compared to the current CPI, the main improvements planned for the rebased CPI include: (i) increasing the geographical coverage by adding Fort Portal as an additional price collection center located in the Western Region; (ii) improving the coverage of Kampala by splitting the baskets from two into three components (i.e., low income, middle income and high income); (iii) improving the classification by switching from a national classification to the Classification of Individual Consumption According to Purpose (COICOP); and (iv) increasing product coverage.
