Abstract: To select the best leading indicators for predicting short-term inflation, an extensive number of economic variables is analysed at quarterly level on the basis of their past correlation with the consumer price index (CPI) and its services and non-energy processed goods component (IPSEBENE). Stationary series are used whose orders of integration have previously been tested by means of seasonal unit root tests.
