The price deflator (CZ-NACE 47) related to the corresponding period of the previous year (VAT excluded) was 101.6%. It was influenced mainly by higher prices of food and automotive fuel.

All data in the text of the News Release are at constant prices.

Data for June 2017 are preliminary. Final data for all months of 2017 will be published in June 2018.
*) The difference between the data non-adjusted for calendar effects and the data adjusted for calendar effects for sale of food (at the same number of working days in June 2017 and 2016) is caused mainly by a higher number of Fridays (which are important for the retail sale of food) and a lower number of Wednesdays (which belong to average days as for an amount of sales).
