Inflation increases in October
Inflation came in at 4.3% in October, which was up from September’s 3.9% but well within the Central Bank’s 3.0–6.0% target range. The reading was largely due to increasing price pressures for food and non-alcoholic beverages and housing, and a smaller fall in transport prices. Annual average inflation fell to 6.4% in October (September: 6.8%). Lastly, consumer prices increased 0.63% over the previous month in October, broadly unchanged from the 0.61% increase logged in September. October's figure was the highest reading since April.
How should you choose a forecaster if some are too optimistic while others are too pessimistic? FocusEconomics collects Uruguayan inflation projections for the next ten years from a panel of 18 analysts at the leading national, regional and global forecast institutions. These projections are then validated by our in-house team of economists and data analysts and averaged to provide one Consensus Forecast you can rely on for each indicator. By averaging all forecasts, upside and downside forecasting errors tend to cancel each other out, leading to the most reliable inflation forecast available for Uruguayan inflation.
