China Fast Figure: CPI Weight and Growth

Gloria Van Rees

2018 CPI numbers are down for most sectors, if the exception being fresh fruits. Fruits doubled in growth from 2016 to 2018. Grains are down .6% in YoY comparison and had the lowest growth in 2018 of all years measured. Meat and pork decreased in 2018, but are relatively stable. Vegetables decreased slightly, but who really wants to eat vegetables?
