In September 2019, consumer prices increased by 0.9% year on yearConsumer price index - provisional results - September 2019
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 October 2019.
Over a year, the Consumer Price Index (CPI) should increase by 0.9% in September 2019, after +1.0% in the previous month, according to the provisional estimate made at the end of the month. This slight drop in inflation should result from a slowdown in energy and food prices, partly offset by an acceleration in services prices and a lesser drop in manufactured goods prices. Tobacco prices should increase at the same pace as in August 2019.
Over one month, consumer prices should fall back (–0.3%, after +0.5% in August). Services prices should contract sharply, due to the seasonal downturn in the prices of certain tourism-related services. Food prices should drop after a 0.5% rise in the previous month. Contrariwise, those of manufactured goods should gather pace and energy prices should increase after a stability in August. Finally, tobacco prices should be stable.
Year on year, the Harmonised Index of Consumer Prices should slow down to +1.1% after +1.3% in August. Over one month, it should fall back by 0.4%, after +0.5% the previous month.
