Residential Contents Index (RCI)


The Sum Insured Residential Contents Index (R.C.I.) is a statistical measure of the movement in home contents replacement costs, specifically focusing on the rate of change of the replacement cost of a home’s contents over time.

Changes in contents prices are researched daily from a wide cross section of retailers, with research conducted via web, telephone, email and field research. Extensive use is also made of detailed surveys of a large range of different household and business types to track the typical quantities of items contained within a home or commercial premises. This ensures we provide users with the most comprehensive and up-to-date contents replacement cost information available in the market.

The residential contents index contains all of the typical categories of contents you would expect to find in a home including everything from appliances, audio visual equipment and computers, through to clothing, furniture, homewares and sporting equipment.
