Development of inflation rates in Germany

The inflation rate in Germany moved over the past years between 0.2% and 5.1%. For 2016, an inflation rate of 0.5% was calculated.

During the observation period from 1992 to 2016, the average inflation rate was 1.8% per year. Overall, the price increase was 53.04 %. An item that cost 100 Euro in 1991 was 2016 so charged 153.04 Euro.

As the price increases are consistently in the positive range, this means that goods and services in the country have become increasingly more expensive over the years. In comparison to other countries, the ample price increases are a bit out of the ordinary. This may be a sign for a political or economic set of problems.
