In February 2015 there was a 0.7 per cent decline in the All Jamaica ‘All Divisions’ Consumer Price Index which was 221.5. This followed the fall of 0.5 per cent that was recorded for the month of January 2015. The main contributor to the decline was the 3.6 per cent decrease in the index for the division ‘Housing, Water, Electricity, Gas and Other Fuels’ resulting from lower rates for electricity and water. Within this division, these movements were tempered by an upward movement in the wages for carpenters, masons, plumbers, painters and electricians during the month. Also contributing to the decline was a 0.6 per cent fall in ‘Food and Non-Alcoholic Beverages’, the heaviest weighted division. All other divisions recorded movements of below 0.5 per cent.
