The price index for the main group of "recreational and cultural" dropped by 2.87 percent year-on-year and by 1.17 percent month-on-month. Furthermore, the price index for the major group "education" rose by 1.87 percent year-on-year and remained flat month-on-month.

The price index for the major group "housing services" rose by 4.81 percent year-on-year, but remained flat month-on-month. The Central Statistical Bureau of the (Economic Statistics Department) has constructed the price indices for October 2013, based on the year 2007 = 100, by using the new relative weights for the basket of consumer goods derived from the 2007 household income and expenditure survey. These weights were used to revise the CPI (based on year 2007 = 100 as a base year) and construct price indices for next years).
