In November 2016, consumer prices increased by 0.5% year-on-yearConsumer price index - provisional results - November 2016

Year-on-year, consumer prices should increase by 0.5% in November 2016, after +0.4% in the previous month, according to the provisional estimate made at the end of the month. This slight rise in inflation should come from a clear acceleration in energy prices and a modest rebound in food prices. Services prices should increase at the same pace as in the previous month. Conversely, manufactured product prices should fall at the same pace as in October.

Over one month, the Consumer Price Index (CPI) should be stable in November 2016, as in the previous month. Energy prices should increase again, but less sharply than in October. Food prices should pick up slightly. These increases should be offset by a sharper fall in services prices. Food manufactured product prices are likely to remain stable.

Year-on-year, the Harmonised Index of Consumer Prices should accelerate to +0.7% in November 2016, after +0.5% in the previous month. Over the month, it is set to be stable, as in October 2016.
