Measurement bias in the Canadian CPI: FB12-7/5-2013E-PDF

"The Consumer Price Index (CPI) is the most commonly used measure of inflation in Canada. The CPI is used to make cost-of-living adjustments in wages and salaries and to index the income tax system and social benefits such as pensions. So it is important that the CPI be as accurate a measure of inflation as possible"--p. [1].
