Underlying inflation

A calculated measure that takes the headline inflation rate and excludes certain volatile items or series that are affected by factors other than general economic conditions (e.g. government taxes, or the effect of weather on fruit and vegetable prices). The resulting rate is based on only those items directly related to the economy.
