On a monthly basis deflation amounted to 0.4 percent from January 2016.
The average annual drop in the period from March 2015 to February 2016 came to 1.4 percent, after a 1.5 percent slide in prices in the 12 months before that.
Data showed a 4.7 percent decrease in the cost of accommodation, due to the drop in rental rates, heating oil, natural gas and electricity costs.
