The month of November 2021 recorded the highest rate of inflation of 12.2% since the rebasing of the Consumer Price Index was done in 2019, the Ghana Statistical Service has indicated.

This indicates that prices of goods and services witnessed upward adjustment during the period, a situation that will push interest rates and consequently cost of borrowing up.

Housing, Water and Electricity (20.5%) once again topped the list of items in the inflation basket that contributed to the rate of increment.

Month-on-month inflation between October and November 2021 was however 1.4%.

Food inflation (13.1%) was higher than both last month food inflation (11.5%) and the average of the previous 12 months (10.4%).
