Summary

The Consumer Prices Index (CPI) rose 2.6 per cent in July, year-on-year, unchanged from the previous month. This was below the consensus view with City analysts expecting inflation to rise to 2.7 per cent.

The Consumer Prices Index including owner occupiers’ housing costs (CPIH), which was re-designated as a National Statistic on 31 July 2017, was 2.6 per cent in July 2017 compared with the same month a year ago, unchanged from the previous month.

Prices in all broad categories were higher in July 2017 than a year ago. Food and Non-Alcoholic Beverages, Furniture and Household Goods, Miscellaneous Goods and Services and Clothing and Footwear showed their highest 12-month rates for a number of years. All provided small upward contributions to the 12-month headline inflation rate.
