Current inflation rate

The Riksbank’s target is 2-percent inflation per year measured in terms of the CPIF (Consumer Price Index with a Fixed interest rate). The Swedish office of national statistics, Statistics Sweden, calculates inflation.

Inflation shows how the price level, measured as the CPIF, has changed compared to the same month last year.
