In April 2016, consumer prices decreased by 0.2% year-on-yearConsumer price index - provisional results - April 2016

In April 2016, according to the provisional estimate made at the end of the month, the Consumer Price Index (CPI) is set to rise by 0.1% month-on-month, as in April 2015. This slight increase should result primarily from a price upturn in services and a new price increase in petroleum products. Conversely, prices of manufactured products should fall slightly in the wake of discounts. Food prices are likely to be overall stable.

In April 2016, according to the provisional estimate made at the end of the month, the Consumer Price Index (CPI) is set to rise by 0.1% month-on-month, as in April 2015. This slight increase should result primarily from a price upturn in services and a new price increase in petroleum products. Conversely, prices of manufactured products should fall slightly in the wake of discounts. Food prices are likely to be overall stable.

Year-on-year, consumer prices should decline by 0.2% in April 2016 after −0.1% in the previous month due to the drop in energy prices during the last months and, to a lesser extent, to the decrease more pronounced in prices of manufactured products. Furthermore, service prices should be unchanged.

In April 2016, the Harmonised Index of Consumer Prices is set to grow by 0.1% over the month, as the CPI. Year-on-year, it should diminish by 0.1%, for the third month in a row.

Warning: these provisional results are only preliminary data. Accordingly, they should not be used for contractual revaluations. The indices 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 complete results will be published on 12 May 2016.
