The Consumer Prices Index including owner occupiers’ housing costs (CPIH) 12-month inflation rate was 0.8% in December 2020, up from 0.6% in November; the largest contribution to the CPIH 12-month inflation rate came from recreation and culture (0.35 percentage points).
On a monthly basis, the CPIH grew by 0.2% in December 2020, following a 0.1% fall in November.
Rising transport costs contributed 0.11 percentage points to the monthly change, while increasing prices for clothing, and recreation and culture items both contributed 0.10 percentage points to help increase inflation; these were partially offset by a downward contribution from falling food and non-alcoholic beverages.
