The Statistical Institute of Jamaica (Statin) reveals that as at October 2014 the All Jamaica ‘All Divisions’ Consumer Price Index was 226.1. This represents an inflation rate of 0.1 per cent, when compared to the previous month. The main contributors to this movement were the 0.2 per cent increase in the index for the division ‘Food and Non-Alcoholic Beverages’ and the 0.3 per cent increase in ‘Housing, Water, Electricity, Gas and Other Fuels”. This increase in the index for the latter division was mainly as a result of higher water and sewerage charges in October 2014. The decline in the index for the division ‘Transport’ of 0.8 per cent moderated the effect of these increases. The ‘Transport’ division’s index fell as a result of the decline in the cost of air fares, as well as the price of fuel.
