Defence inflation estimates: financial year 2015/16

These statistic estimates capture inflation in the mix of goods, labour and services bought each year by the Ministry of Defence.



The defence inflation statistic measures the average change in pay, and prices of goods and services, making up the defence budget, with quality and quantity held constant.

A background quality report is included. The purpose of a background quality report is to inform users of the statistics about the quality of the data used to produce the publication and any statistics derived from that data.
