Indonesia as a developing country needs to
maintain the stability of its economic growth. The price
level is one of the stability factors in economic growth.
The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of
the Consumer Price Index on inflation in Indonesia
during the pandemic. This study uses a simple linear
regression analysis technique. The data used are
Consumer Price Index (CPI) data and inflation data for
2016-2020 obtained from Statistics Indonesia. The results
showed that the CPI had no significant effect on inflation
in Indonesia. The value of R Square which shows the
magnitude of the influence between CPI and inflation is
2.3%, the remaining 97.7% is influenced by other
variables that are not included in this research model.
The significance of the regression value can be seen from
the results of t-count. The t-count value is 1.18 > 0.05. In
addition, the P-value of the CPI is 0.24 > 0.05. So the
researcher concludes that the CPI has a negative and
insignificant effect on inflation in Indonesia.
