In November 2017, consumer prices increased by 1.2% year on yearConsumer price index - provisional results - November 2017

Over a year, the Consumer Price Index (CPI) should rise by 1.2% in November 2017, after +1.1% in the previous month, according to the provisional estimate made at the end of the month. This rise in year-on-year inflation, the fourth in a row, should come from an acceleration in energy prices and services prices and from a lesser drop in manufactured product prices. The acceleration in tobacco prices should contribute too, but to a lesser extent. Food prices should grow at the same pace as in the previous month.

Over a year, the Consumer Price Index (CPI) should rise by 1.2% in November 2017, after +1.1% in the previous month, according to the provisional estimate made at the end of the month. This rise in year-on-year inflation, the fourth in a row, should come from an acceleration in energy prices and services prices and from a lesser drop in manufactured product prices. The acceleration in tobacco prices should contribute too, but to a lesser extent. Food prices should grow at the same pace as in the previous month.

Over one month, consumer prices should rise by 0.1%, as in October. This new slight increase should result from an acceleration in energy prices, a lesser fall in services prices and an increase in tobacco prices. On the other hand, food prices should slow down, due to a downturn in fresh food prices, which sharply rebounded in the previous month.

Year on year, the Harmonised Index of Consumer Prices should slightly gather pace for the fourth consecutive month, to +1.3% after +1.2% in October. Over one month, it should rise at the same pace as in the previous month (+0.1%).

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 14 December 2017.
