Norway: Inflation eases in February

March 10, 2020

Consumer prices fell 0.1% in February, following January’s flat reading. The slight fall was primarily due to lower prices for housing and utilities, clothing and footwear, and transportation.

Inflation softened to 0.9% in February from 1.8% in January, consequently moving further below the Norges Bank’s 2.0% target rate. Meanwhile, average inflation ticked down from 2.1% in January to 1.9% in February.

The Central Bank projects that inflation will average 1.3% in 2020 and 3.0% in 2021. FocusEconomics Consensus Forecast panelists expect inflation to average 2.0% in 2020, which is unchanged from last month’s estimate. In 2021, they expect inflation to average 2.1%.
