About the tracker
InflationCheck was setup to track real inflation in the UK economy. We use the Tesco labs developer API to monitor grocery prices, The AA to monitor fuel, British Gas to monitor energy costs and the rest comes from government published statistics.
The data collection engine is run twice monthly and the site is updated at the start of each new month and around the 15th of each month.
The aim is to provide 3rd party independent inflation statistics over the long term. Sharing is caring and inflation is going to become a topic of mainstream interest as rates start to rise.
If any developers would like to contribute to the project or for press queries please contact me here.
