October inflation recorded at 0,28%
ILUSTRASI. BPS Rilis Data September 2018 Deflasi 0,18%

KONTAN.CO.ID - JAKARTA. The Central Statistics Agency (BPS) announced on Thursday (1/11) that the October 2018 inflation rate stood at 0.28%. The figure brings the year-to-date (ytd) inflation to 2.22%.

Meanwhile, the annual inflation in the same period was 3.16% year-on-year (YoY). "This figure is still under control considering inflation is still below 3.5%," said Suhariyanto, Head of BPS, Thursday (1/11).

Suhariyanto explained, the main cause of the inflation was an increase in the price of red chilies, non-subsidized fuel and rental rates for houses.

In detail, Suhariyanto explained that housing, water, electricity, gas, and fuel experienced inflation of 0.42%. This group contributed the most share in October inflation by 10%. Followed by inflation in processed food, beverages, cigarettes and tobacco by 0.27% with a share of 0.05%.

"Prepared foods, rice, side dishes, and clove cigarettes contribute to the highest inflation," he explained.

Suhariyanto expects the price level - especially food - to remain stable until the end of the year. "We must be aware of December inflation because there are Christmas and New Year holidays," he said.
