The monthly change rate was 0.7 percent as compared to the 18.5 percent recorded in February 2016.

 

The inflation rate measures the average rise in the prices of all consumer goods and services in the country.

 

Announcing the figures, Government Statistician, Philomena Nyarko said the main drivers of the March inflation was Transportation and utilities.
