In January, according to preliminary estimates, the NIC index, including tobacco, showed an increase of 0.4% compared to December 2010 and 2.1% over the same month last year. In December 2010, the trend growth was equal to 1.9%. Inflation for 2011 is acquired at 1.2%. Core inflation, calculated net of energy goods and fresh food, is equal to 1.4%, the same figure recorded in December 2010. On the trend, the variation in the prices of goods rose to 2.5% (from 2.1% in December 2010), while in services the dynamic trend of price falls to 1.5% (was +1.6% in December). Therefore, the inflation differential between goods and services increases. The acceleration in inflation recorded in January is affected by pressure on prices of goods, especially goods of non-regulated energy and unprocessed food, whose effects are only partially mitigated by the slight slowdown in growth of the prices of services calculated on an annual basis.
