I hope this question is not inconvenient for any of you, so I would appreciate if you do not mark it as not useful.
I want to work with the data of the CPI from the BLS (I am not American, and this is the first time I am using the BLS). I want to ask where I can find the raw data and the relative importance of components. My goal is to build some aggregate categories of my own.
Also, I would like to know if there exists any R script or Stata do file that explains how to build the CPI.
Thank you in advance for your help.
