The current Consumer Price Index was re based from 2005/2006 to 2009/2010, using weights derived from the Uganda National Household Survey (UNHS IV) that was conducted from May 2009 to April 2010. During the re basing exercise, Kampala was further decomposed into three baskets from the two that has been existing. In addition, Fort-portal Center was incorporated into the Index. The re based CPI is now classified using international standards, referred to as Classification of Individual Consumption According to Purpose (COICOP). This is a shift from the Central Product Classification (CPC) that was used in the earlier series.
