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 16 November 2021.

Additional information is available in “For further information”.

Over a year, the Consumer Price Index (CPI) should rise by 2.6% in October 2021, after +2.2% in the previous month, according to the provisional estimate made at the end of the month. This increase in inflation should result from the acceleration in service and energy prices. The prices of tobacco should advance, over a year, at the same rate as in the previous month. The prices of food and manufactured goods should slow down.

Over one month, consumer prices should rise by 0.4%, after −0.2% in September. Energy prices should accelerate sharply due to the petroleum product prices and natural and town gas prices. The prices of services and tobacco should be stable after a decrease in September. The decline in food prices should be less marked than in the previous month. The prices of manufactured goods should slow down.

Year on year, the Harmonised Index of Consumer Prices should rise by 3.2% after +2.7% in September. Over one month, it should increase by 0.5% after −0.2% in the previous month.

Definition

The Harmonised Index of Consumer Prices (HICP) is designed for comparison of consumer price inflation between Members States of the European Union. It is computed for all households in France except Mayotte. The main difference between HICP and CPI is about the health costs: HICP is based on net prices of social security reimbursements and CPI is based on gross prices.
