Kenya's CPI and Inflation Rates for October, 2016

Kenya National Bureau of Statistics hereby publishes Consumer Price Indices (CPI) and rates of inflation for October, 2016. These numbers have been generated using data collected during the second and third weeks of the month under review. The prices were obtained from selected retail outlets in 25 data collection zones which are located in Nairobi and in 13 other urban centers.

As shown in Tables 1 and 2, the CPI increased by 0.62 per cent from 171.56 in September 2016 to 172.62 in October 2016. The overall inflation rate stood at 6.47 per cent in October 2016.

Between September and October 2016, Food and Non-Alcoholic Drinks’ Index increased by 0.96 per cent. As indicated in Table 3, this was attributed to increase in prices of several food items which outweighed the decreases. The year on year food inflation stood at 11.03 per cent in October 2016.

Over the same review period, Housing, Water, Electricity, Gas and Other Fuels’ Index, increased by 0.16 per cent. This was partly contributed by increases in house rents which outweighed notable falls in the costs of kerosene and cooking gas.

Despite notable fall in the cost of diesel, the Transport Index increased by 0.37 per cent in October 2016 compared to September 2016 mainly on account of increases in the pump prices of petrol.
