BRASILIA, April 14 (Reuters) - Economists in a weekly poll
raised their estimates for Brazil's 2014 inflation rate to 6.47
percent from 6.35 percent previously, a whisker below the
official target ceiling, the central bank said on Monday.
    Brazil's central bank targets inflation at 4.5 percent, with
a tolerance margin of 2 percentage points.
    The median estimate for inflation at end-2015 was also
revised up to 6.00 percent, from 5.84 percent previously. The
poll features the consensus view of about 100 economists.
