Australians aged +14 expect inflation of 4.3% per year over the next two years, according to the Roy Morgan Inflation Expectations Index for August 2018. This is unchanged on a month ago, but down 0.2% from August 2017. Inflation Expectations have now tracked in a narrow range between 4.3-4.5% for 14 straight months. Inflation Expectations remain well below the eight-year average of 5.0%. Analysis by employment status shows that Inflation Expectations for employed Australians dropped to 3.9% in August 2018, down 0.4% on a year ago. In comparison, Australians who are not employed – including retirees, students, those on home duties, those choosing to not work and the unemployed – increased by 0.1% to 4.9%. August Inflation Expectations are based on a nationwide face-to-face survey of 4,385 Australians aged 14+.
