De acuerdo con el instituto, la cifra representa una variación de 0.84 % respecto al mes anterior. En el mismo mes de 2021, la inflación mensual fue de 0,53 % y la anual, de 5,88%. La escalada de precios en el país refuerza la perspectiva de que el Banco de México seguirá endureciendo su política monetaria.

Mexico Statistics Body Criticized for Poverty Survey Changes

07/18/16 The New York Times

inegiMEXICO CITY — Anti-poverty groups in Mexico accused the national statistics agency Monday of arbitrarily changing the way it measures income surveys so poverty appears to be less of a problem.

The agency said it required its interviewers to dig deeper with people who reported no income, to turn up even the most meager sources of income like handouts, odd jobs or help from relatives. Those previously unregistered amounts were then added to the count in the survey, which was carried out late last year.
