Poland's annual inflation rate was confirmed at 17.2% in September, from 16.1% in August, the highest since September 1996, latest figures from the Warsaw-based Central Statistical Office (GUS) showed on Friday.
That was in line with flash data published on September 30.
A 29.9% rise in utility costs was primarily responsible for the upward trend in inflation.
This was followed by a 19.3% rise in prices for food and non-alcoholic beverages.
On a monthly basis, consumer prices moved up 1.6% in September, following a 0.8% gain in August. The latest figures match flash data.
