Price indices, percentage changes and weights for the different measures of consumer price inflation.
The Consumer Prices Index (CPI) rose by 0.5% in the year to March 2016, compared with a 0.3% rise in the year to February.
The rate has increased gradually since October 2015 although is still relatively low in the historical context.
Rises in air fares and clothing prices were the main contributors to the increase in the rate between February and March 2016.
These upward pressures were partially offset by a fall in food prices and a smaller rise in petrol prices than a year ago.
CPIH (not a National Statistic) grew by 0.7% in the year to March 2016, up from 0.6% in February.
