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 March 2023.

Over a year, the Consumer Price Index (CPI) should rise by 6.2% in February 2023, after +6.0% in the previous month, according to the provisional estimate made at the end of the month. This slight increase in inflation should result from an acceleration in food prices and service prices. The prices of manufactured goods should increase over one year at a rate close to the previous month and those of energy should slow down

Over one month, consumer prices should increase by 0.9%, after +0.4% in January. The prices of manufactured goods should rebound with the end of winter sales. Those of services should accelerate linked with the rebound in transport service prices. The prices of energy should slow down, as the effect of the increase in regulated electricity tariffs should be reduced by the fall back in petroleum product prices. Prices of food should also rise less strongly than in January.

Year on year, the Harmonised Index of Consumer Prices should rise by 7.2%, after +7.0% in January. Over one month, it should increase by 1.0%, after +0.4% in the previous month.
