Inflation - summary of current international inflation figures

The literal meaning of the word inflation is to blow up or get bigger. Inflation is a word which is particularly used in an economic context. The most common economic meaning of inflation is a reduction in the value of money (monetary depreciation). Prices thereby rise and after a while you can buy less with the same amount of money. The opposite of inflation is deflation. With this prices fall and your money therefore becomes worth more.

This page allows you to compare the current inflation figures for a large number of countries and regions. The summary shows the following inflation figures:
  • CPI - consumer price index (often viewed as a country’s most important inflation figure)
  • HICP - harmonised consumer price index (is used to compare inflation within Europe)
If you click on the name of the country or region you will come to a page with extensive supplementary information.
