For further information

The price index of frequently purchased goods in hyper and supermarkets is mainly calculated using scanner data (75%), whose collection has not been affected by the lockdown, and for the remaining part, using prices collected by INSEE collectors in physical outlets. The price index of beverage in hyper and supermarkets is carried out by 100% using scanner data, whereas that of meat by 30%, that of other food products by 76% and that of cleaning and personal care products by 98%.

The price index in the other kinds of stores is calculated only with prices collected by collectors in physical outlets.

The price collection carried out by collectors on the field has been adjourned since October 30. INSEE has introduced new collection methods (price collection on line, price collection by phone, increased use of scanner data) but the percentage of imputed prices remained high in November and the quality of the indexes did not allow to publish the indexes for the others kinds of stores than hyper and supermarkets.
