Brazil - Inflation (end of period)

Inflation falls to over one-year low in August

Consumer prices fell a seasonally-adjusted 0.36% in August over the previous month, a less pronounced fall than the 0.68% drop recorded in July. The result marked the second decline in consumer prices in a row. Looking at the details of the release, the moderation in the decline was chiefly due to a softer fall in prices for transport.

Inflation came in at 8.7% in August, down from July’s 10.1%. August's reading represented the lowest inflation rate since June 2021 and the halt to an 11-month period of double-digit inflation. Despite the sharp moderation, August’s rate remained well above the Central bank’s 3.5% target. Consequently, the trend pointed down slightly, with annual average inflation coming in at 10.7% in August (July: 10.8%).
