Inflation Calculator

Calculate the difference in purchasing power based on price inflation between two years.

The inflation calculator below will take you to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics inflation calculator. It will tell you  the cost differential based on the Consumer Price index for the month and year. Inputs range from 1914- Present. You also need to input the starting value and the inflation calculator will tell  you the inflation adjusted price. (As in the example below).

BLS CPI Inflation Calculator 

Our inflation calculator (unlike most on the web) not only gives the inflation adjusted price but also the total cumulative inflation (see red text in the example below). We were also the first to provide an inflation calculator that worked from a specific month within the year. To calculate the total cumulative inflation between any two months from 1913 to the present use our cumulative inflation calculator.
