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 April 2023.

Over a year, the Consumer Price Index (CPI) should rise by 5.6% in March 2023, after +6.3% in the previous month, according to the provisional estimate made at the end of the month. This decrease in inflation should result from a slowdown in energy prices. Prices of food and tobacco should accelerate. Those of manufactured goods and services should increase over a year at a rate close to that of the previous month.

Over one month, consumer prices should increase by 0.8% in March 2023, after +1.0% in February. The prices of energy should slow down due to the new decrease in petroleum product prices. Those of services should also slow down notably linked with the downturn in transport service prices. The prices of food should increase at the same rate than in the previous month. Those of manufactured goods and tobacco should accelerate.

Year on year, the Harmonised Index of Consumer Prices should rise by 6.6% in March 2023, after +7.3% in February. Over one month, it should increase by 0.9%, after +1.1% in the previous month.
