Belize Consumer Price Index - September 2012 Infographic

According to the Statistical Institute of Belize, between September 2011 and September 2012, the National Consumer Price Index for Belize increased from 101.5% to 102.0% yielding a point to point inflation rate of 0.5%. This change was mainly because of the high prices in the categories of “Food and Non-Alcoholic Beverages” (+0.8%), "Health" (+6.8%), "Recreation and Culture" (+5.0%) and “ Miscellaneous Goods and Service” (+4.1%) as noted in the infographic above.

Categories like “Education” (-2.2%) and “Furnishing, Household Equip. and Routine Household Maintenance” (-1.9%) saw a decrease in price making them both more affordable than the other items and services in the consumer’s list.
