3 Mar 2022 – Year-on-year inflation in the OECD area rose to 7.2% in January 2022, compared with 6.6% in December 2021, and just 1.6% in January 2021, reaching its highest rate since February 1991. This increase reflected in part another sharp rise in inflation in Turkey. Excluding Turkey, inflation in the OECD area rose to 5.8%, after 5.5% in December 2021.1

Year-on-year inflation in the G20 area also increased in January 2022, reaching 6.5 % compared with 6.1% in December 2021. Outside the OECD, inflation patterns vary widely: year-on-year inflation continued to rise in India and Indonesia, but declined markedly in China (to 0.9%, from 1.5%), and to a lesser extent in Argentina.

While services prices accelerated markedly in most OECD countries, energy prices, and to a lesser extent food prices, continued to boost inflation in all the OECD countries. Excluding food and energy, OECD year-on-year inflation increased to 5.1%, the highest rate since December 1992, after 4.7% in December 2021.
