December 16, 2015
In November, consumer prices were flat over the previous month, following the 0.1% increase tallied in October. November’s reading mainly reflected that higher prices for clothing and footwear as well as for hotels, cafes and restaurants were compensated by lower costs for food and non-alcoholic beverages along with alcoholic beverages and tobacco.
Consumer prices recorded zero growth in November, which was above the 0.1% drop in October. Meanwhile, the harmonized index of consumer prices was flat in monthly terms in November (October: +0.1% month-on-month). Annual harmonized consumer prices fell 0.4% in November, which was above October’s 0.5% decline.
