Australia - 5.2% (Australia Bureau of Statistics, December Quarter 2013 to December Quarter 2014)
US - 3.6% (Bureau of Labour Statistics , unadjusted percentage change January 2015)
UK - 10.2% (Office of National Statistics (ONS) , year 2014)
Living inflation (p.a.)
Singapore - 2.5% (Monetary Authority of Singapore, Inflation Calculator, Year 2008 to Year 2013)
Australia - 2.8% (Reserve Bank of Australia , Year 2004 to year 2014)
US - 2.4% (US Inflation Calculator , Year 2004 to Year 2014)
