Private survey inflation data, comes out monthly (against the official data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics which is out only once a quarter)
And, it was also a wee bit slow to hit ... hence the delay
The 'core' inflation is the trimmed mean measure, comes in at +0.2% m/m and +1.9% y/y

The next official Consumer Price Index from the ABS is scheduled for July 26
