In October the cost of living increased by 5.7% and the food basket by 6.6%

The basic basket climbed 5.7% in October compared to September, and the food basket rose 6.6%. Driven by the rise in food prices under the Maximum Price program, both indexes had their most significant increase in the year. Thus, last month a family needed almost $50,000 ($624.2) in order not to be poor and $20,710 ($250) in order not to be indigent.
