Neighbourhood Review


Merbok is a small town located in Kuala Muda, Kedah, and is about 23km from the town of Sungai Petani. Formerly a small fisherman’s settlement, the area has since expanded and become more developed.

A consumer price index (CPI) measures changes in the price level of a market basket of consumer goods and services purchased by households. (Wikipedia)

The Consumer Price Index (CPI) line shows an increment in prices of essential goods on a yearly basis, while the Percentage Changes line shows the level of changes in price increments over the years. For example, a dip in the CPI line may indicate a low level of price increment as compared to the previous year while a surge in CPI line shows a high level of price increment as compared to the previous year.

The above graph shows 1.746% of price changes in essential goods such as rice, meat and tobacco between the years 2011 and 2012, while increasing in difference to 2.193% in 2013. Prices of essential goods then increasing to 2.892% in the year 2014 while surging by 1.995% in 2015.
