In the first nine months this year, the accumulated rate stands at 1.78%, way lower than the 5.51% in the same period in 2016. This is the lower accumulated value in September since 1998 (1.42%).

The IPCA was made public today (Oct. 6) by the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics. The index showed an accumulated expansion in the 12-month period of 2.54%-higher than the 2.46% registered in the 12 previous months, but considerably lower than the 4.5% target set by the Central Bank.

In September, of the nine groups of goods and services surveyed, only food and drink (-0.41%), and housing (-0.12%) showed deflation. Transport was the highlight for price hikes, with 0.79%.
