Consumer prices index(CPI) is the government's preferred measure of inflation, it corresponds with inflation measures used by other European countries. It excludes mortgage interest payments and council tax.

Retail Price Index(RPI) is the familiar and long-established measure of cost-of-living in the UK.

New Retail Price Index(RPIJ) was introduced after statisticians found the formula used to calculate RPI had overstated inflation. In March 2013 they provided revised figures going back to 1997.
The series was discontinued after January 2017. CPIH, Consumer Price Index with owner-occupied housing costs and council tax becomes 'the most comprehensive measure of inflation'. The CPIH series goes back to 2005.
