RPI is the familiar, long-established, measure of cost-of-living used in wage agreements, commercial leases, regulated rail fares and index-linked gilts.
RPIJ was introduced after the Office for National Statistics found the formula used to calculate some RPI elements had overstated inflation. In March 2013 they provided revised figures going back to 1997.

Use Consumer and Retail Price Indices since 1988 to see RPI and RPIJ by month, comparison with CPI and more extensive description of CPI, RPI and RPIJ.
