Germany Consumer Prices in April Rose in Line With Forecasts

By Maria Martinez

German consumer prices rose in April, confirming preliminary data, the German statistics office Destatis said Wednesday.

Consumer prices rose 2.0% on year, measured by national standards, in line with the forecasts of economists polled by The Wall Street Journal. Prices rose 2.1% on year by European Union-harmonized standards, also in line with forecasts.

On month, consumer prices rose 0.7% by national standards and 0.5% by EU-harmonized standards, both as forecast.

The coronavirus pandemic and its related restrictions caused pricing collection problems again in April as some products weren't available in the market, Destatis said.
