Personal Inflation Calculator

Data Visualization: 71-607-X2020015


This interactive calculator allows users to create a personal inflation time-series. Users enter dollar amounts in the common expense categories to produce a personalized inflation rate, which will more closely approximate an individual’s inflation experience than the average measure of inflation - the Consumer Price Index (CPI).

The Personal Inflation Calculator displays your personal index, 12-month percentage change, or 1-month percentage change in personal inflation alongside the official CPI in an interactive chart, allowing the user to compare inflation estimates over time in selected geographies.

This web-based application is updated monthly, as the data for the latest CPI reference month become available.
