NZ Q1 Consumer Price Inflation Release

Published: Thu 20 Apr 2017 11:27 AM
The NZ Consumer Price Index (CPI) for Q1 has just been released.
The CPI came in higher than expected.
NZ CPI Q1/Annual:
Headline Q1 CPI +1.0% / +2.2% Consensus 0.9% / +2.1%
Non-tradables CPI +1.0% / +2.5% versus previous quarter
Tradables CPI +0.8% / +1.6% versus previous quarter
CPI 10% Trimmed Mean came in at +0.9% for Q1 and +2.2% for the last 12 months.
The non-tradables group is a barometer of domestic inflation.
Higher petrol prices and tax rises on tobacco helped lift inflation. House-related prices also contributed to the higher inflation rate.
The NZD is higher in immediate response.
