ArgentinaInflation, average consumer pricesIndex Source: National Statistics Office
Latest actual data: 2015
Notes: 	The consumer price data for Argentina before December 2013 reflect the CPI for the Greater Buenos Aires Area (CPI-GBA), while from December 2013 to October 2015 the data reflect the national CPI (IPCNu). Given the differences in geographical coverage, weights, sampling, and methodology of the two series and the authorities' decision in December 2015 to discontinue the IPCNu, the average CPI inflation for 2014, 2015, and 2016 and end-period inflation for 2015 are not reported in the April 2016 World Economic Outlook. On February 1, 2013, the IMF issued a declaration of censure and in June 2015 called on Argentina to implement additional specified actions to address the quality of its official CPI data according to a specified timetable. The new government that took office in December 2015 has stated that it considers that the IPCNu is flawed and announced its determination to discontinue it and to improve the quality of CPI statistics. It has temporarily suspended the publication of CPI data to review sources and methodology. The Managing Director will report to the Executive Board on this issue again by July 15, 2016. At that time, the Executive Board will review the issue in line with IMF procedures.
