Bulgaria's consumer prices rose by 6% year-on-year in October after a 4.8% annual increase in September, the National Statistical Institute (NSI) said on Monday.

Upward pressure mainly came from food & non-alcoholic beverages (5.9%); housing & utilities (9%); and transport (19.7%).

On a monthly basis, consumer prices increased 1.8%, after being flat in the previous month.

Bulgaria's EU-harmonized consumer price index, HICP, rose by 5.2% on an annual comparison basis in October and was 1.3% higher than its September level.

In a separate statement, the Sofia-based statistics institute said that the country's unemployment rate stood at 4.6% in the third quarter of 2021, down from 4.8% in the third quarter of last year.

The long-term unemployment rate, the share of people without a job for more than a year, was 2.4%, or 77,600 people.
