We have analysed the inflation structure in Pakistan. We find that, even according to official figures, there is strong evidence to suggest that a single inflation index is irrelevant for our economy, and a dual sector analysis is imperative. Dividing the ecOnomy into the two sectors, essential commodit1es' and production commodities, we get statistically meaningful results. We consider some economic implications of our.findings.
