STATIN: Inflation rate increased in August
The Statistical Institute of Jamaica is reporting that in August 2014, the inflation rate for Jamaica as represented by the ‘All Divisions’ Consumer Price Index was 1.1 per cent. This inflation rate according to STATIN, was chiefly the result of a 2.7 per cent upward movement in the index for the division ‘Food and Non-Alcoholic Beverages’. The index for the group ‘Food’ increased by 2.8 per cent as production levels of some agricultural crops declined due to the continued drought conditions across the island. This resulted in higher prices for the classes ‘Vegetables and Starchy Foods’ and ‘Fruit’ which rose by 9.8 per cent and 2.6 per cent respectively.
