BUENOS AIRES, March 13 (Reuters) - Argentine inflation eased to 0.9 percent on the month in February from 1.1 percent in the previous month, official data showed on Friday.
The February figure matched the forecast of 0.9 percent given in a recent poll of analysts by Reuters.
Latin America’s third-largest economy has one of the world’s fastest inflation rates.
Many private analysts question the credibility of government data and estimate inflation somewhere between 30 and 40 percent. (Reporting by Hugh Bronstein and Richard Lough; Editing by Meredith Mazzilli)
