Inflation picks up in December

In December, consumer prices fell 0.1% over the previous month, which followed the 0.2% drop recorded in the previous month. According to Statistics Denmark (DST), the figure mainly reflects how higher prices for food and non-alcoholic beverages as well as for housing were offset by lower prices for communication and household equipment.
