Abstract

This research uses annual time series data on inflation rates in Burundi from 1966 to 2017, to model and forecast inflation using ARIMA models. Diagnostic tests indicate that B is I(1). The study presents the ARIMA (0, 1, 1). The diagnostic tests further imply that the presented optimal ARIMA (0, 1, 1) model is stable and acceptable for predicting inflation in Burundi. The results of the study apparently show that B will be approximately 9.4% by 2020. Policy makers, particulary, monetary authorities in Burundi are expected to tighten Burundi’s monetary policy in order to restore price stability.
