Inflation in Mozambique: empirical facts based on persistence, seasonality and breaks


  • Luis Alberiko Gil-Alana
  • Carlos Barros
  • Joao Ricardo Faria


This article investigates inflation in Mozambique using long-range dependence (LRD) techniques in monthly data from December 1995 to October 2012. Two important features of the data are analysed: persistence and seasonality, looking at aggregated and disaggregated data. The stability of the parameters across the sample is also investigated. The results indicate a high degree of persistence in the data along with a strong seasonal pattern. Policy implications are discussed.
