The highest annual inflation rates in November 2023 were recorded in Food and non-alcoholic beverages (8.2 per cent) and Education (5.6 per cent). On the other hand, the lowest annual inflation rates were registered in Communication (-9.3 per cent) and Clothing and footwear (1.0 per cent).

In November 2023, the largest upward impact on annual inflation was registered in the Food and non-alcoholic beverages Index (+1.45 percentage points), largely due to higher prices of bakery products. The second and third largest impacts were measured in the Restaurants and hotels Index (+0.86 percentage points) and the Housing, water, electricity, gas and other fuels Index (+0.53 percentage points), mainly on account of higher prices of restaurant services and rents, respectively.

A downward impact on annual inflation was registered in the Communication Index (-0.37 percentage points), mainly reflecting lower prices of mobile phone services.
