Core cpi inflation model l.jpg
Core CPI Inflation Model of Recovery

  • Dependent Variable: Quarterly change in core CPI inflation growth. (Δπt = πt – πt-1)

  • Independent Variables:

    • Two lags of the change in core CPI inflation.

      • Δπt-1, Δπt-2,

    • One lag of the PAM unemployment rate.

    • Profit Margin

    • One lag of inflation expectations.

      • Unemp Ratet-1

    • Two lags of the relative import price.

      • Rel Imp Pricet-2 = Import Price Inflationt-2 – πt-2
