INFLATION BY COUNTRY


Estimated Inflation for 2011-2018 By Country


The © Financial Freedom Index uses average figures of estimated inflation rates for the years 2011 to 2018. These have been calculated using projected annual inflation rates from the IMF World Economic Outlook Database.

The individual average inflation rates are assigned "ratings" from 0.00 - 1.00, with 1 being the best. Inflation rates between 1.5% and 2.5% are rated as most favorable and are given a rating of "1.00". The "optimal inflation range" of 1.5-2.5% is equivalent to the official 2% target inflation rate of the Federal Reserve (source 3) with a ±0.5 percentage point difference. The "ratings" from 0.00-1.00 assigned to the inflation rates decrease on a logarithmic scale for inflation rates below and above the "optimal range".
