Bank of Canada’s preferred measures of core inflation : Consumer Price Index.: CS11-627/2017-43E-PDF

"The Consumer Price Index (CPI) is an indicator of changes in consumer prices experienced by Canadians. It is obtained by comparing, over time, the cost of a fixed basket of goods and services purchased by consumers. Based on the CPI, Statistics Canada also produces and publishes the Bank of Canada's three preferred measures of core inflation: CPI-trim (trimmed mean), CPI-median (weighted median), and CPI-common (common component). The following infographic looks at the three preferred measures of core inflation and illustrates how they are calculated"--Provided by publisher.
