BUENOS AIRES, July 15 (Reuters) - Argentina inflation held steady at 1.0 percent in June, in line with the median forecast in a Reuters poll of analysts, official data showed on Wednesday.

The data also showed that consumer prices rose 15.0 percent on the year in June, and were up 6.7 percent in the first six months of 2015 compared with the same period a year ago.

Most private analysts, however, question the credibility of official data and estimate actual inflation in Latin America's third-largest economy to be much higher. (Reporting by Buenos Aires Newsroom, editing by G Crosse)
