Philippine Inflation Rate for April 2013

I missed to publish the inflation rate for the months of February and March 2013 because of a busy schedule. Anyway, I hope I can catch up with the latest news about inflation in the Philippines.

So for this post, I would like to give you the data about the inflation in April 2013 from the National Statistics Office (NSO). The summary of inflation can be seen on the table below.


Year-on-Year Inflation Rates, All Items
April 2013 March 2013 Year-to-date
     Headline 2.6 3.2 3.0
     Core 3.1 3.8 3.6
     Headline 1.7 1.9 2.1
    Headline 2.8 3.6 3.4


As you can see in the table above, the inflation rate in April 2013 is lower by 0.6% than in March 2013. Even in the specific areas in the Philippines like NCR and areas outside NCR, the inflation in April is lower than in March 2013.
