Press release: 12.113-179/19
– In September 2019, the inflation rate was +1.2%, as Statistics Austria
reports (August 2019: +1.5%). Expenditures for housing, water and energy
(+2.8% compared to September 2018) remained the most important
price driver, followed by expenditures for restaurants and hotels (+3.1%).
Decreasing prices for telecommunication and transport had a dampening
effect on the inflation rate. The index level of the consumer price
index 2015 (CPI 2015) was 107.0 in September. Compared to the previous
month, the average price level increased by 0.5%.
The index level of the harmonised
index of consumer prices (HICP 2015)
was 107.42 in September 2019 (August revised 106.34), with the harmonised
inflation rate amounting to +1.2%.
