Monthly Inflation Rates (YoY) | 1981-2022

The following table contains YoY (year-over-year) inflation rates calculated from monthly CPI data publications. The value of each month indicates the rolling average inflation rate for the last 12 months.

This information is particularly useful to track inflation for the current year as it's not possible to calculate the final value until the year is over.

The values on the December column are equivalent to annual inflation rates. For example, the 7.40% rate shown under 2021 and December matches the value shown in the table above as the annual inflation rate.

Monthly Inflation Rates (MoM) | 1981-2022

This table contains MoM (Month-over-Month) inflation rates calculated from official CPI data publications.

MoM measures are more volatile than YoY because they are influenced by short term events such changes in the monetary policy, stock market crashes or natural disasters.
