Dominican Republic: Inflation rises further in September
October 11, 2020
Consumer prices rose 0.60% over the prior month in September, down from August’s 0.78% rise. September’s reading was driven by significantly higher food, education and transport prices.
Inflation rose from 4.8% in August to 5.0% in September, hitting the upper bound of the Bank’s 3.0%–5.0% target range. Core inflation—which excludes volatile items such as certain types of food, fuel and administered prices—was up from 4.2% to 4.3%.
