About Us

We provide an inflation calculator that uses the CPI (Consumer Price Index) rates from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The All-Items CPI, used by the calculator to calculate inflation rates in the United States, is updated as soon as the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) releases its monthly CPI data.
