Estimating Consumer Price Indices for Small Reference Populations

Abstract:
The weights of a consumer price index are usually estimated from sample means or totals of a single household expenditure survey. This article discusses alternative estimation methods for (small) domains. Applications are given for employees’ families in the Netherlands. Because of nonsampling errors, the weights could be biased. Linking the estimates to national accounts consumption data is used to assess the bias.

Keywords:
Expenditure weights; small-domain estimators; sampling variance; micro-macro link.
