Frequently Asked Questions

What is

AdjustForInflation is an inflation calculator, designed to be quicker and easier than other calculators with an intuitive user interface.

Which index do you use to adjust for inflation?

The default calculation uses the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U), scaled to a 100 average for 1982-1984. The index used is provided by the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics. An option to select a different index will be provided in the future.

How many decimal places does your index use?

The index values for 1913 to 2006 are rounded to one decimal place (e.g. 60.6). 2007 to 2013 are rounded to three (e.g. 215.303).

It's 2014, why can I only adjust up to 2013?

To provide the most accurate year-to-year inflation calculation, we only include the latest official annual average index, which is released mid-January the month after the year ends. Adjustment to the 2014-dollar will be available mid-January in 2015 after the Department of Labor releases the official 2014 index value.
