Inflation in the German state of Hesse held steady in October.

The inflation rate remained at 2 percent, the state’s statistics office in Wiesbaden said in an e-mailed statement today. Economists forecast that German inflation, calculated using a harmonized European Union method, will slow to 2 percent from 2.1 percent in September, the median of 8 estimates in a Bloomberg News survey shows. That report will be released on Oct. 29, based on data from six states.
