lHE fc llo n ing memorandum on the subject of Oost-of-Living Index Figures, in so far as agricultural
1 labourers ara concerned, is publish-ed for g-neral information.
JOHN R. DABREO,
Acting Labour Commissioner.

U((ST OF LIVING INDEX FOR THE MONTH OF JULY, 1957.

The revised Cost-of-Living Index for all items for the month of July, 1957. was 100.1, a rise
of .1 points over the base figure for June, 1957, taken jis 100. When this revised index is linked with
the index figures for June, 1957, in the old series, in order to produce an all items" figure for July,
1957, comparable with all the indices published from November, 1942 up to and including June, 1957,
i.e. on the basis of August, 1939 taken as 100, the index is 239.3 (2r9 in whole number) or a rise of
-3 points. The calculation fcr linking the index is as tollows.
All itemsn index for June, 1957 (August 1939= 100) 289
A 1 items index for July, 1957 (Juno 1957= 100) 100.1
Linked All items index f-r July, 1957 289.3
(August, 1939= 100)=2 9 x r10.1
100
or 289 in whole number.
The following table shows the Cost of Living Index Figures at the end of e.ich month.as compared
with the basic year (August, 1939) taken as 100:-

PRINCIPAL CHANGES DURING MONTH.
Food: There was no change in the prices of the items under this group during the period under
review. The index figure of 100 over June, 1957, therefore rm:niined un-hane'l.
Fuel and Cleaning : There was no change in the prices cf the items in this group during the
period. Like in June, 1957, the index figure remained at 100.
Clothing : During the period under review the average level of prices of Khaki Shirts, Women's
Vests and Silk Dress Material (Plain taffeta),'rose by .8 points. The group index figure was 100.8
for July as compared with 100 for June, 1957.
1)rink and Tobacco: There was no change in the prices of the items in this group during the
month. The June Index Figure of 100 therefore remained unchanged.
Miscellaneous Goods: The average level of prices in this group showed no change during the
month. The index number therefore remained at 100 as in the base month June, 1957.

REVISION OF COST OF LIVING.
On the advice and with the guidance of Mr. Dudley Seers. an I.L.O. expert on secondment as
Statistical Adviser to the Government of Barbados, Windward and Leeward Islands, the Labour
departmentt has carried out a revision of the Cost of Living Index which has been compiled each month
since 1942 in respect of agricultural workers.











&46 GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, OCTOBER 12, 1957.-(No. 55.)

OBJECTS OF REVISION.
The objects of the revision are to permit of a more technical approach in the compilation of the-
index and to rectify certain necessary changes and omissions in the index.
Experience has suggested the need for certain changes in the index. Some of the items used for
pricing are no longer commonly purchased (such as Women's stockings). In other cases, items have
proved unsuitable for pricing, because their pattern changes from month to month (e.g. women's hats),
or because they are not available for long periods of the year (for example manioc). It was therefore-
decided to change somewhat the list of price goods.
The opportunity has been taken to introduce other changes. The specifications of some items
have been made more precise, in the light of experience gained in running the index. Another change
is that all prices are now taken directly from retailers, whereas in some cases the prices previously
used were the maximum prices permitted under price control regulations. Prices are now taken on the
spot on specific days each month instead of by the old method of returns supplied by retailers. Certain
new items are being priced for the first time. These include: The price of tailoring a labourer's
working trousers, brassieres, iron pots, cinema and bus fare, local strong rum, leaf tobacco. Certain
items appear to have been too heavily weighted such as shoe repairs, and the weights for them have
been decreased.
The main changes introduced will now be considered in detail.

GROUP I- FOOD.
The following items formerly priced are dropped from the Index and their weights added to those-
items used for similar purposes: corn, farine and manioc, wet sugar, salt pork (lips), fresh meat (soup),
beans, ripe plaintains, cocoa rolls.
Cereals: Corn flour has been substituted for corn, farine and manioc.
Sugar: The weight for wet sugar has been added to that for unrefined clear crystal and unrefined
dark crystal sugar.
Salt Meat: For this item, two quotations are now taken instead of three. The weight allotted
to salt pork (lips) has therefore been added to snout and salt beef.
Fresh Meat: Quotations are now taken of the prices of beef and pork (soup; as formerly.
Fruits : The weight previously allotted to ripe plaintains has been added to green plaintains,
bluggoes and bananas.
Cocoa : The weights allotted to cocoa have been allocated to cocoa (trampled seeds) tea and
coffee (ground).

GROUP II-FUEL AND CLEANING.
Matches: This item was equally weighted with kerosene, charcoal and soap (local) in the past.
Its weight has now been shared with a new indicator-Ice.

GROUP III-CLOTHING.
It is in this group that changes in availability of brands cause greatest difficulty. Consultations
were held with the firms which furnish data for the Index, with a view to determining what brands
and types of goods were regularly in supply, and were constantly bought by agricultural workers. Out
of these consultations, it emerged that there has been a marked increase in the purchase of Hong
Kong brands and that stocks and consumer preference have changed in respect of branded goods from
other countries.
Men's Socks. Experience has shown that little use is made of this indicator and the expendi-
ture on it is negligible. It has therefore been dropped and replaced by the cost of tailoring a pair of
working trousers.
Women's Stockings : Because this item is seldom used now it has been replaced by brassieres.

GROUP IV-DRINK AND TOBACCO.
Cigarettes : Cigarettes have been removed from the All Others" Group and placed under this
group which carries two indicators not previously used in the index. These two indicators, Local
Strong Rum and Leaf Tobacco, are used extensively by agricultural workers and are therefore con-
sidered to be important items to be included in the index. The weights for these items were obtained
from a reduction of the weights of Fruit, Flour and Bread.

GROUP V-ALL OTHERS.
Saucepan and Frying Pan: These items have been replaced by Iron Pot.
Agricultural Fork: This item has been dropped as the average agricultural worker is supplied
with it by his employer when required to perform duties involving the use of this tool.
Medical: The weight for this item has been transferred to the cost of obtaining Medicines at the
Government Dispensary.
Benefit Society : This indicator is considered to be of the nature of a Savings and not an item
of expenditure. For this reason it has been dropped.











GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, OCTOBER 12, 1957.-(No 55.) 497

Rents: Formerly this item carried a weight under this group although no attempt has ever
been made to get a quotation for it. Because it would be extremely difficult to get accurate quotations,
this item has been dropped.
Shoe Repairs: This item was very heavily weighted in the past with the cost of repairs of
Men's half sole, Men's whole sole, Women's half sale, Women's whole sole, Boy's half sole and Boy's
whole sole each receiving a separate weight. One weight has now been allotted to the Shoe Bepairs
and quotations will be obtained for half soling Men and Women's shoes.
Cinema and Bus Fare: These two items are introduced in the index for the first time and
together carry a weight of one. The quotation for cinema price is the cost of a Pit Ticket at the
Empire Theatre while that for Bus Fare is the cost of a one way trip from Sauteurs to St. George's.

GENERAL.
Time of Collection.
It has been decided that the dates for pricing each month shall be specified, not left to discretion.
The days used are the second Friday for prices for ground provisions on estates and fish in the St.
George's area and the second Saturday of each month for fresh meat, pork and ground provisions in the
St. George's market. Other item. used in the index will be priced on th s second W dnesday of every
month. In case either of these days is a public holiday the diay proceeding or following will be used.

Changes in the Availability of Items.
It frequently happens that a specified item is not in stock and has to be replaced by an item of
different brand or origin. Such a loss poses the problem of making a substitution in such a way that
the validity of the index is not affected.
Suppose, for example, an item which was priced at 10 cents per unit is no longer available, but it
is found that a similar item but of different brand is available in the current month and suitable for
pricing. If at the time when both items were available, the price of the item to be substituted was
(say) 15 cents per unit, and for the cu rent month is 20 cents per unit-an increase of 33 1/3%-then
it can be assumed that there would have been a rise of 33-1/3%-in the price of the former item, so
that its prices would have been 13 cents per unit. In this way proportional changes in prices of the
available items are used and continuity preserved. Where there is no such overlap period, enabling
series to be linked, an attempt will be made to substitute items as similar in quality as possible, and to
allow for any change in quality, so far as this can be done.
In applying this method, the assumption is made that the change of item priced does not per se
mean a change in the "cost of living".
For June, 1937, prices have been collected for the items specified in both the old version of the
index and the new, so that this month provides a basis for the linking of these two indices. In this
way the general framework of the old index has been maintained and the new index number will
carry the same pre-war base. This is done by using the same weights as previously to indicators start-
ing with a June 1957 base. The indicators are then averaged to form a new index number
(June 1957=100), and this number is multiplied by the June index number on the old basis
(19S9 = 100).
In all these respects the index is a vast improvement on the one previously used. It wlll give a
reasonably reliable picture of the trend in the cost of an agricultural worker's budget and should be
relevant material in wage negotiations.
