Estonia: Inflation climbs to one-year high in March

April 8, 2021

Consumer prices fell 0.21% over the previous month in March, contrasting the 0.86% increase logged in February. March’s result mainly reflected a drop in prices for housing, and recreation and culture, as well as slower growth in prices for food.

Meanwhile, the annual average variation in consumer prices remained unchanged from the previous month, coming in at minus 0.7%. Lastly, harmonized inflation increased to 0.8% in March from 0.5% in the previous month.
