The retail price index and the cost-of-living index: Testing for consistency in theory and practice.

Abstract:
This paper tests the published section-level price and weight data used in the compilation of the UK retail price index (RPI) for consistency with the theory of the cost-of-living index. We use a non-parametric test of theoretical consistency and bootstrap statistical methods to estimate the probability of consistency.
