The objective of this paper is to estimate inflation persistence in Albania for the period 1993 to 2008. We apply the univariate approach with constant and time varying mean of inflation for headline and core inflation, and also test whether there are structural changes of persistence. The empirical results suggest that persistence of headline inflation was somehow higher during the inflationary periods while it started to decline after 1997, when inflationary expectations seem to have been stabilized.
