Harmonised Index of Consumer Prices (HICP)

In March 2020, the Swiss Harmonised Index of Consumer Prices (HICP) stood at 100.78 points (base 2015=100). This corresponds to a rate of change of +0.1% compared with the previous month and of –0.4% compared with the same month the previous year.

The HICP is a supplementary indicator for inflation based on a harmonised method across EU member countries. It enables inflation in Switzerland to be compared with that of European countries.

The European Statistical Office, Eurostat, publishes the results according to a predefined calendar. The FSO publishes a comparison between inflation in Switzerland and Europe on the webpage www.ipch.bfs.admin.ch. A methodological note, the 2020 weighting of the Swiss standard HICP basket and the FSO News publication on the HICP are also available on this page. Eurostat will publish the HICP indices for other European countries for March 2020 on 17 April 2020. You will find the HICP results on the Eurostat website at the following address: https://ec.europa.eu/eurostat/web/hicp
