gaizinho Consideration of inflation increase
Dear WEO-Team,

the awareness of strong inflation increase worldwide will be considered in the following September/October publication of the CPI indizes?

By the way, do you already know the day when the new data will be published?

Thanks for your reply.

Not only will inflation be highlighted in the October publication, but it will also be covered in our July update that will be released this Tuesday, July 15.

As for data, the update on July 15 will contain a small subset of the data we release with the full publication, which will be released on October 8.

The new release concerning Global Slowdown and rising inflation figures shows projections of change in Gross domestic product, constant prices.

Is there any dependancy between GDP and Inflation so I can calculate an updated increase of CPI based on the GDP update published yesterday?

Unfortunately, there is no direct link (GDP at constant prices compensates for inflation within an economy) and we cannot release any data that is not already included in the update's table. That said, the table does include inflation figures for the aggregate advanced and emerging and developing economies country groups.
