Tariffs for services for the population increased by 0.4%
Tariffs for services for the population in Uzbekistan in August this year increased by 0.4%, which led to an increase in the consolidated CPI by 0.1 percentage points. The key factor in the growth of prices for paid services to the population in August of this year was the increase in prices for liquefied gas sold to the population for domestic needs, the State Committee of the Republic of Uzbekistan on Statistics reports.
If to consider the structure of the effect of price changes in tariffs for services in general for January-August 2018, then the greatest contribution to the increase in the index of tariffs in this sphere was made by the increase of tariffs for housing and communal services, passenger transport and household services. In total they provided about 1.4 percentage points of the total CPI growth for 8 months of the current year (22,6 % contribution).
