In February 2016, according to provisional estimates made at the end of the month, the Consumer Price Index should be up by 0.2% month-on-month (+0.7% in February 2015). This increase should come from a price rebound for manufactured products after the end of winter sales. Moreover, service prices should rise less than last year while the prices of fresh foodstuffs and petroleum products should decrease again.
Year-on-year, prices should decline by 0.2% in February (after +0.2% in January 2016) due to the drop in energy prices. Besides, the offset of the school holiday calendar (mainly for the Ile-de-France region) should have a downward effect on the prices of services related to tourism this year.
In February 2016, the Harmonised Index of Consumer Prices is set to rise by 0.3% compared with the previous month. Year-on-year, it should decrease by 0.1% after +0.3% in January 2016.
Warning: These data are only provisional results. The indexes published here are based on a limited set of price observations and from estimates of some rates of change for fares which are not yet available. The definitive results will be published on 15 March 2016. Accordingly, these provisional indexes should not be used for contractual revaluations.
