In October 2017, consumer prices increased by 1.1% year on yearConsumer price index - provisional results - October 2017

Over a year, the Consumer Price Index (CPI) should increase by 1.1% in October 2017, after +1.0% in the previous month, according to the provisional estimate made at the end of the month. This third consecutive rise in year-on-year inflation should result from an acceleration in food prices and a lesser drop in manufactured product prices. Energy prices should slow down slightly after two months of sharp acceleration. Services prices should rise at the same pace than in the previous month.

Over a year, the Consumer Price Index (CPI) should increase by 1.1% in October 2017, after +1.0% in the previous month, according to the provisional estimate made at the end of the month. This third consecutive rise in year-on-year inflation should result from an acceleration in food prices and a lesser drop in manufactured product prices. Energy prices should slow down slightly after two months of sharp acceleration. Services prices should rise at the same pace than in the previous month.

Over one month, consumer prices should recover slightly (+0.1%) after a moderate downturn in September. This drop should come from a rebound in food prices and a lesser fall in services prices. Energy prices should increase at the same pace than in September: a rise in town gas prices should be offset by a slowdown in petroleum product prices. On the other hand, manufactured product prices should decelerate sharply after an increase in September.

Year on year, the Harmonised Index of Consumer Prices should increase again a little faster, to +1.2% after +1.1% in September. Over one month, it should rebound by +0.1% after a downturn of 0.2% in the previous month.

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 15 November 2017.
