Swiss Consumer prices rose by 0.1 % in September 2018

The consumer price index (CPI) increased by 0.1 % in September 2018 compared with the previous month, reaching 101.9 points (December 2015 = 100). Inflation was 1.0 % compared with the same month of the previous year. These are the results of the Federal Statistical Office (FSO).

The 0.1 % increase compared with the previous month can be explained by several factors including rising prices for clothing and fresh vegetables. In contrast, prices for international package holidays and air transport decreased.
