Revisitando as Medidas de Núcleo de Inflação do Banco Central do Brasil


  • Tito Nícias Teixeira da Silva Filho
  • Francisco Marcos Rodrigues Figueiredo


Since 2000, Banco Central do Brasil (BCB) announces measures of core inflation in its Inflation Reports. Throughout this period, the set of measures has been altered as the result of either the evolution of the Brazilian economy or the incorporation of new approaches to measuring core inflation. This article reassesses the current set of core measures published by BCB. The evidences show that within the classes of measures (exclusion, trimmed means and double weighted), the chosen measures here do not differ substantially from those currently disclosed. Furthermore, regarding the performance in terms of capturing the inflation trend, the ranking among classes remains, highlighting the results for the measures using smoothed trimmed means
