Croatia: Inflation rises to highest level in over three years in August

September 14, 2012

In August, consumer prices rose 0.5% over the previous month, which contrasted the 1.0% decline observed in July. According to the Croatian Bureau of Statistics (CBS), the increase mainly reflected higher prices for transportation as well as for alcoholic beverages and tobacco. As a result of the monthly rise, annual headline inflation jumped from 3.4% in July to 4.0% in August, which represents the highest level since February 2009. The core consumer price index, which smoothes out more volatile categories such as fresh food and energy, fell 0.3% over the previous month, which exceeded the 1.1% drop seen in July. Despite the monthly decline, annual core inflation edged up from 0.7% in July to 1.0% in August.
