According to INSEE, inflation was not the same for all French people. Journalist Sandrine Feydel explains these results on the set of 19/20, Monday June 27.

Inflation hits certain categories of households harder, according to an INSEE survey. “When you live in a big city, inflation is 4.4% over one year, when you live in rural areas, it’s 5.9%“, explains journalist Sandrine Feydel, present on the set of 19/20, Monday June 27. “People in big cities have much better access to public transport, while in rural areas there is often no choice but to drive“, she details.

According to this study, inflation for a manager was 4.5% over one year, while it rose to 6% for a farmer. “There is also a significant difference by age. Those over 75 are more affected than those under 30“, she concludes. The energy expenditure of housing, the price of fuels and the cost of food are the main price increases that affect households.
