Results: November Inflation Survey Results

Thanks to all those who participated in our latest inflation survey. This edition of the survey asked two questions:

  1. How many price increases have you taken in 2022?

A total of 57% took one or two increases. This did not surprise me as much as the notion that 20% took four or more and 10% took zero. Those who took multiple increases had difficulty keeping pace with the rise in costs. As to those who did not take increases, I am not sure how that was possible in light of inflation.

29% took one price increase

28% took two price increases

13% took three price increases

12% took more than five price increases

10% took zero price increases

8% took four price increases

2. How much have you increased your prices in 2022?

44% of those responding indicated that they hax taken n increase of between ten percent and fifteen percent. Another 15% took increases of between fifteen and twenty-plus percent.
